Can’t believe it’s only day four and I already feel like I’ve gone 12 rounds with George Foreman, in his boxing days not his old salesmen days. I am excited to be at 12,371 words and the prospect of hitting the 50k goal by the 15th is mindblowing. But I do have to remind myself that this is the first weekend and I need to see what king of pace I can keep up during a normal work week.
All though today is not normal, I have jury duty. OK, those of you who just cringe and feel sorry for me, like you would if I had an appointment with a dentist, stop it right now. No offense to dentists, but I enjoy jury duty. I once served on a jury for a court case that took four days to be heard, it was very fascinating and I hope to get picked for another jury this time around.
I do have my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 with a bluetooth keyboard, so as long as I am not in a courtroom I should be able to get some words written. I am so energized to see the 20k mark that I think I can do it by Tuesday, or Wednesday at the latest. Of course it is a good thing that I am putting up these king of numbers already, I am scared that my story will need 100k or more words to be told and if the writing goes into December it may get pushed back on my list of prioritize.
I know NaNoWriMo is supposed to help build the habit of writing daily, and I hope it does. I am just nervous that when the excitement of NaNoWriMo leaves my house that it will become harder and harder to focus this much on writing. Well, only time will tell and I will do my best to continue the good habits I am making in November into December and beyond.
Also, don’t forget to check out ProjectRUETSway, as they have posted their first weekly challenge. Looks like fun.
I hope the NaNoWriMo word counts are flying for you all, comment and let me know how you are doing. Have fun and NaNo on my friends!
Until next time…
