NaNoWriMo 2020: Day Seven

Good evening, folks! 1743 words this evening. Earlier in the day I edited and submitted a story to an anthology. This story I wrote while in quite a bad place and I think some of the darkness I was feeling at the time transferred into the story.

1743 isn’t the 3000+ I wrote yesterday but that was an anomaly and today was what I’m aiming for. It’s all good and well hitting a 3k day but if tomorrow I can barely do a hundred words then it’s not much good. I’d really like to get to a consistent level of productivity. I’d really like to get into the habit of doing 1500 a day throughout the year. So looking at next year, that might be a goal I aim for. It’s not outside the realm of possibility, even with my day job. I just need the discipline to sit my chunky arse in a chair and write.

Editor Dizzy sleeping on the job! She’s seventeen, so I think she’s allowed 😊

Tomorrow I need to sit down and touch base with where I am with my projects. I’ve lost a little track, the story I submitted today I only did so because the editor put up a post about the approaching deadline! So I need to work better to make sure I’m not missing these deadlines as they come along.

That’s it for the night, I’m going to read and then get my head down. I’d like an early start and get a mornings work done before feet up and relax tomorrow.

  1. Excellent word count, and congrats on getting your story submitted. I just finished (like 5 seconds ago) editing my first Nano short story. I have several hours yet to go this evening, so I think I can get it formatted and submitted before I hit the sack.

    Dizzy looks so comfortable and content. Whenever she’s sleeping, you can have Max fill in as editor.
