It’s been over a week since NaNoWriMo began. I made a schedule and I had a plan. How am I doing? Not so hot.
I had a few days of events I didn’t plan for that meant I didn’t get any writing done. I went roller skating and learned how to cartridge pleat! There were a few more days where I just couldn’t summon the energy to get anything done. All of that adds up to me being several thousands of words behind.
I could say, eh, I’m not going to catch up… but I can’t do that. Last night, I got back on track and went over the 1667 word a day goal. I feel like I’m ready to go and can accomplish my goal.
My laundry is still getting done, my dishes are mostly getting done, and I have made dinner every day this week since Sunday. For me, that’s pretty impressive. Also, it’s a pattern I can continue while I catch up with my writing.
So am I on target? No, but I’m getting there.
