Just a quick update to give you all an idea of just how poorly I’m doing at this year’s NaNoWriMo. To date, I’ve written exactly 14,467 words of Legends and Myths of Erâth, which is about half of where I should be. I’m very disappointed in myself.
The trouble is that I’m so often tired and exhausted when coming home from work that I fail to write in the evenings. Yesterday and today I had off, but instead of writing I’ve spent most of it sleeping (and buying a new car). And now, of course, instead of writing I’m blogging, which is still writing but not the kind that counts.
According to the NaNoWriMo website, I’d have to write 2,359 words a day to finish on time. Or else I’ll be done around Christmas. So here I go, back to work, scrabbling desperately to finish a book that’ll never be done on time. Oh well.
