NaNoWriMo 2020: Day Eleven

Wow, it’s hard to believe we’re at day eleven already. In some ways the last eleven days have flown by but in others it feels like its dragged out. I’ve been off from work as well, which I think plays a part in that weird time displacement that’s been going on the last eleven days.

One of my guest appearances on Stefan’s Daily Gaming 🙂

I’ve written 2002 words for a total of 21423 words. I was aiming for 1667 words every day, regardless of what I wrote the day before. I’ve failed at that. I’ve had three days where I got under that target, and that’s not good enough when I look at the why I haven’t written 1667 each day. I know the why, and I’ve got to figure out how to stop it from happening again. I’m looking at trying a few things in the next few weeks to see to it that it doesn’t happen again. My biggest hindrance is I’m not as disciplined as I could be. That’s what I need to get a handle of. I can’t let my wondering mind destroy my concentration. I need to focus better and make the most of the resources that I have in place to get these stories done.

Today, I feel like I did good. I wrote those 2002 words and then made some red pen edits on a short story (only a couple of thousand words), and I prepared for a Zoom appointment this evening and did a little gaming.

Dizzy wasn’t interested in gaming, but made herself comfy.

After the Zoom call I’ve put my feet up, had some dinner and am now watching Daybreak on Netflix. Tomorrow I’m going to (try) to get up at about 8am like I did today, and get some words done nice and early because you know what? I’ve had a productive day. I’ve felt more relaxed today than I have done in a few weeks. I know that’s not just the writing, but that is a good percentage of it. If I can keep being productive, I have better days.

  1. Congrats on a great day! I got in 2110 so far and expect to wrap up this first draft of my second Nano short story tonight. I only need about 150 more words to tie up a loose end. I’m right where I wanted to be, so no complaints.
