NaNoWriMo Report – Day 22
Well, my mental state has improved, but I’m not sure if it’s in time to save my NaNo. I’m still plugging away though.
At one point I was a whopping 7,000 words behind. I’ve been trying to make up for lost time, but I’m still around 5,000 words in the hole. I’ve had a few really good days, but they seem to be interspersed with a few not so good days.
I made some good progress on the weekend when a character I killed off at the very beginning came back as a ghost and is now firmly entrenched in the story, but then I got distracted by some reading.
It’s funny how things change over the years. I can remember my first NaNo win . . . I got most of my writing done late at night while watching Star Trek movies. Now I’m finding the television is too distracting. I get more writing progress done in my office.
To finish on time I need to write 2,300 words a day. Can I do it? I guess we’ll find out next week.
