I'm very far behind on my word count. But I am much further ahead on my writing in general, than I ever would have been had I not signed up for Nanowrimo.
I have every intention of finishing (still). My novel has taken shape and is off in a good direction. I just need to close myself off from the world for a week and do nothing but write. No eating, no sleeping...just writing. It will never happen, of course, but that is what it will probably take.
I finally reached 10,000 words on Thursday night and then only wrote 719 more on Friday. Way behind the 1,667 words a day to finish by November 30. I plan to get more writing done today, and I have tomorrow, too. (That's what I keep telling myself so I don't quit.)
I have to admit that it is overwhelming with all the catching up I have to do. I don't even want to say how far behind I am...Let's just say I might as well be trying to scale Mt. Everest.
That is how daunting my goal feels right now to me.
Okay, I am through whining here...time to write. See ya!
