Even though I’ve passed the 50,000 word target I’ve still got a novel to write and although it’s nearing its end it still doesn’t feel like it’s quite there yet. I have eased off the pace a little though. I’m still trying to write a couple hundred words before work but I’m not going to continue to write during my lunch breaks while at work.
I’ve also dropped my daily word count target down to 1000 words a day from the 1667 that is the minimum daily target if you are to hit 50k by the end of the month. I’m sure I could keep up my pace, but I’m not willing to wipe myself out just to maintain a 2000 word plus, a day average. I still have a full time job to think about which is the main reason why I’m drooping the word count down.
One thing I am worried about is that I am now going to loose this momentum I’ve got from doing NaNo, which I really don’t want to let happen. I’m hoping that writing each day is now a habit and it’s one that won’t be broken easily. I’ve written for eighteen days straight now and I’ve been told that once you’ve done something daily for twenty-one days then it’s a habit. So three more days and then it should, hopefully be well rammed into my mind.
I know almost all of my posts have been NaNo related recently but I will be getting back to my other random posts in the next couple of weeks.
This is me done for the night now. I’m going to get into bed and get a few pages of The Waste Lands by Stephen King consumed 🙂
