Just crossed the 45k mark! I’m less than 1 day behind now. A bit more slogging tomorrow (well…it’s today already, technically) and I’ll make the deadline. SO exciting! A proper long update to come after NaNo is over. Weekdays are not conducive to writing several thousands words of novel AND a nice, full length blogpost. Sunday was rad. I want the weekend again.
And now I just so happen to be sitting pretty at 42, 774 words!
I think I am most excited about completing NaNoWriMo so that I can not only go back and fix up the story, but so I can focus on creating the original language that is sampled in it! I’m so in love with coming up with vocabulary and decoding the grammatical intricacies, but alas, I cannot spare the time! Soon!
At last, progress! Lord knows I’m far behind, but I’ve inched closer than I’ve done in days. I got 37,878 out of a 43, 333 word target, which is farther than I thought I’d be able to catch up. Looking forward to more work tomorrow (in between finishing my econs problems, of course) to reach out for that 45, 000 word mark.
As of about Wednesday this week I’ve been quietly curled in a fetal position between classes, returning home to lie in bed like a limp vegetable and quietly bemoan the lack of energy to do any uni work at all, let alone continue Wrimo-ing.
That feel when you finally finish a scene that’s been killing you to write for weeks
