Friday I managed less than 600 words, and yesterday I managed about 1500 and I’m currently at 8359 words. I’ve fallen off the pace because on Friday I got hit by a head cold. This seriously knocked me off my feet on Friday night and Saturday. After I finished work yesterday and sorted the henhouse out I had a piping hot bath and got into bed. After a few hours of Big Bang Theory and some pizza, I hopped onto a sprint thread on my local NaNo’s Facebook page and managed to smash out those 1500 words, yesterday.
As of today, I’m sure I’m not behind massively so if I manage to hit the 1667 words today I’ll still be roughly on target. I’m kinda of glad this cold hit me now, it’s early on in the month and I had words in the bank.
I’ve had a feeling that this years NaNo was going to be a challenge, and this is a minor hurdle in the grand scale of NaNoWriMo, but it’s one I’m going to vault and regardless of whether I loose more days due to this cold I’m not going to let it stop me.
