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.
