Tragedy has struck me already. I am over 20,000 words behind!
I started NaNoWriMo (National November Writing Month) on the 1st as with everyone else and was hitting a good 1.5k words a day. It was going so well, until I became swamped with work and neglected it. Something I can’t excuse.
So what did I do?
I deleted the whole bloody thing and have been writing non-stop with a newer, fresher idea of the story I originally plotted. It’s going great. The only challenge now is to catch up to around 25k words over the weekend or face an even more horrendous task during the week.
Like many of you, I work full time and with that comes over time and exhaustion. I work on computers all day so the blur and hum of a laptop can sometimes churn my stomach so I like to sit and read and fall asleep. Lovely isn’t it. (A small flask of Glenfidditch Whiskey has snuck its way into my reading area!)
Follow me on twitter @JasonVowles as I will be updating my word count through there and you can also find me on the #NaNoWriMo site here: http://nanowrimo.org/participants/jasonvowleswriter
So how is everyone else doing? What’re your word counts? Has anyone fallen into pits of despair and word block as I have or are you steaming ahead at 40k already?
I’ve been out of the loop recently so some comments would be awesome!
