NaNoWriMo 2020: Day Twenty-Eight

I really don’t want to give you folks a summery of yesterday’s word count, because it was rubbish! But here it is….171 words for the day.

I know, that’s more than I had at the start at the day, but I’m disappointed in myself. I know I was tired, but I had times when I could have got a few more words down. I really need to sit down and plot out my days better. When I’ve got a busy week I need to pick out when I can write and make the most of the time I’ve got. I know I’ve said that before, I just need to pull my head out of the sand and do it.

The cats in harmony, which lasted a few minutes but better than nothing!

To hit 50,000 words for the month I need to write 7,204 by midnight tomorrow. This is not me being pessimistic, but I’m not going to hit the 50k. I have written that in a day, but I don’t want to be comatose afterwards. I’ve got tomorrow off, and I’m going to give it a good go, but I’m not going to burn myself out over it.

  1. If you’re at 43k, you’re pretty darn close whether or not you get any more words done! I can top your 171 word disappointment: I finished editing my 3rd story, and I’m NOT going to submit it anywhere. I’ve written it for nothing, and because I didn’t submit it, my Nano goal of four story submissions won’t be met! Well, I’ve gotten the experience of writing under a deadline and the practice of focusing hard, so I guess it wasn’t a waste. It’s just that it’s not what I want to be known for: horror-comedy. It wasn’t satisfying to write. Hang on before you talk me out of it . . . okay, it’s deleted, gone.

    I have one more story to edit and submit. I might be able to make it by midnight tomorrow, we’ll see!
