NaNoWriMo 2020: Day Nine

Good morning. It is 4:39am here in the UK and my body has decided I should be awake. So, I am. I can only lay in bed for so long before I realise that I’m not getting back to sleep.

To the numbers! Yesterday I wrote 1849 on this years NaNo project and 339 on Penal Earth. I’m at 18052 for NaNo, which isn’t quite where I was hoping to be at this point but I’m not unhappy with it. I’m still ahead of the minimum target and if I can keep that up when I get back to work I’ll be happy. A bad mindset I’ve found I keep falling into is thinking that I just have to hit the minimum to make it to 50k by the end of the month. Where I’m a little ahead I don’t have to write 1667 words a day to finish on 50k, I see that minimum on the NaNo site and I think that’s what I need to do. I definitely need to stop thinking like that. Regardless of how many words I have or don’t, I need to aim for the 1667 a day.

Speaking of words, seeing as I’m awake I might as well make a start.
