So this wasn’t exactly planned, but I ended up taking the weekend off from NaNoWriMo. I ran into some non-NaNoWriMo issues late last week and just really needed to spend some time relaxing. I read a little bit, but inevitably ended up playing video games until stupidly late at night with some friends (and now I’m really tired). But I’m feeling ready to start tackling writing once again.
Unfortunately I’m now about 4000 words behind par. Luckily I was about a day ahead before taking the few days off, otherwise I would have been further behind. But I’m not too worried about it; I’ve got this next week off so I’m hoping to spend a lot of time working on NaNoWriMo. Besides getting back on track, I’m hoping to get ahead of par this week too because I have a trip planned for next weekend and won’t want to worry about NaNoWriMo while I’m away (and I’ll only have a few days left to write when I get home). So wish me luck in the coming week!
If you want to watch my progress (or be writing buddies) you can find me here on the NaNoWriMo site. I’ll also be updating Twitter with my writing progress so you can watch my Twitter feed for news about my novel. Good luck to everyone else who is participating this year – we’ve got 11 days left to go!
