NaNoWriMo: Day 8

Nope, sure didn’t post anything yesterday. I did add about 800 words in the evening. I have added about 700 words this morning.

I may or may not have gotten distracted and stayed up too late on Monday night rewriting a short story (4600 words). I’m a lean, mean writing machine! (No, not really.)

I’m already hitting that slump where it’s getting hard to drag the words out from where they’re hiding in  my subconscious. I’m still determined to keep at it, though. If nothing else, this is how I need to learn that writing 500 words or 5000 words in a day is still progress, even if I don’t think it is much. I’m working on it.

I’m also getting to that point where I have “ooh, shiny!” syndrome happening. I already got distracted by one short story. Now I’m looking at another story that has been in progress for a while and thinking about reviewing another story that I did actually finish but was never 100% satisfied with the ending. Plus I still want/need to do all my reading for the Reading Challenge I may have foolishly undertaken. I’m going to finish reading all the books, but I don’t think it’s going to be done in a year. Not unless I can do a lot of catch up when I take some time off at Christmas (which is a distinct possibility).

We’ll see! Either way, I’m still plugging along at NaNoWriMo and keeping with it.
