It’s a good thing I’m not officially doing NaNoWriMo, because I’m pretty sure I don’t stand a chance of getting 50,000 words done in the month of November.
Sometimes that’s because I’ve got a difficult (for me) part to write, like that first sea battle I’ve ever attempted. Sometimes it’s because real life interferes, like the week, almost, when my energies went more into dealing with car issues stemming from recalls. (Don’t get me started on that one.) And then, of course, we’ve got Thanksgiving coming up, too.
But that doesn’t mean it’s been a total loss. So there’ve been relatively few days I’ve made the goal of 1667 words a day. I’ve been making slow, but steady progress. And I’m now more than a third through the first draft half-way through the month. It’s been well worth it and I’m going to make every attempt to keep it up, even into December. I’d really love to finish this first draft by or in January.
