NaNo Check-in

NaNo is half way done…  and I am not.  By this point I should have 25,000 words written, and I am at less than a third of that. 

I was feeling a little discouraged about this, but I’ve decided to not worry so much about it.  The point is I am writing

According to my NaNo stats, I’m averaging about 550 words a day.  Most days I write about 1000ish words, but I don’t write every day.  At this point in my life, this is about the best I can do on a consistent basis.  And for now at least, it’s going to have to be enough. 

 I’ve written more this month (or at least more consistently) than I have in a long time.  I do feel psyched.  So if nothing else, at least NaNo has done that for me.

I know I’m not going to make it to 50,000 words by November 30th.  And that’s okay.  If I keep it up at the rate I’m going, I’ll have those words by the end of January (according to my NaNo stats.)  I can live with that.
