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.

2188 if my math is right, awesome! I wrote cringe-worthy stuff yesterday, but maybe it’ll get better on the eventual rewrite. Good luck on today’s writing!
Sorry I’m only just replying, it ended up in spam for some reason! But I hope you Abel to get it all sorted 🙂
