  1. Spoiler alert, I didn't pass out. I just went to bed when I realized it was 1 o'clock.

    I regret nothing.

    Done 1,455 yesterday. Starting today, I'm going to write what I can and allow my body to rest.
     
  4. 35,000 in total so far. Seven more days [roughly], and I'll be done.

    A cool 300 today.

    Many factors, hardly worth mentioning. But today was the first day I realized maybe I don't care about "winning" Nano enough to actually do what would be needed to win. I want a break, heh.

    A little over 2k tonight. I'm a thousand words from 50k but I have a bad case of the very tired from lack of sleep. I believe I just typed at least 1K of nonsense so time to call it a night. Great job everyone reaching the halfway mark. Two weeks left!!
     
  7. Hit the halfway point last night.
     
  8. I'm typing out 16 pages, but I'm discovering that it [mysteriously] might not be enough to actually reach 35,000. Maybe 34,000, but I'll see what happens.

    3.5k tonight and I've officially passed the 50k mark! On track to hit 100k by the end of the month. I did that two years ago while writing the first draft of this novel and hope to beat that word count this month. (I think it was around 108k).Wish me luck!!

    up to 4600 total words now. Almost at the end of Chapter Three - the interpersonal dynamics of that monastery drew me in. I wasn't going to include any of the monastics later in the story, but I am now reconsidering that, along with much else.

    Tomorrows goal - blow through Chapter Four in one shot. This is one where the mental movie clips are numerous and strong, so that might be doable.

    But the RL situation remains a major mess (complicated now by back pain).

    Yesterday was a bust.

    My first day back at work after vacation, and I walked into a swirl of events that appear to be leading to the eventual takeover of the company by a partner who, all said, would probably be a much better person to have at the helm. But my position would probably disappear, so I'm looking at transitioning into some other role. Or finding a new job.

    Then I got home and Windows was taking forever to update after I turned my computer on. After about an hour and a half and still going, I decided screw it, watched the latest Flash episode, then got an early sleep. I expected to wake up early but instead slept through to my alarm, so I feel extremely rested this morning, heh.

    TLDR; I did exact 0 words yesterday.

    I'm not going to win this year and have come to accept that. The most important thing is building a regular writing habit no matter the word count. Some days will be zero and it's okay! Progress happens over a stretch of time. :)

    I'm calling this NaNo a bust. With having started a new job after not having worked for 2 years, my time management has gone to hell. My writing tablet also broke and I can't type as fast on my phone. So...whatever. C'est la vie.

  13. It's 2:00 and I haven't written anything. If I tried to do all 16 pages, I would finish at 10:00.

    Also, I don't know how I expect myself to do much when all I want to do is play Dragon Quest IX all day. I'll have to force myself to write.

    I've gotten the Fallout bug. Feel your pain, Crystal.

  15. I'm at 35,000 words, too, and 5,000 words [ish] until the climax. Oh, well. If I skip a day and finish on the 23rd instead of the 22nd like I planned, I guess that's okay.

    It's definitely a bust for me as well. I discovered today that the changes at work are going to happen lightning fast, and I'll be moving into a management position which will mean less ability to manage my own time and more work, especially during the transition. Next two weeks are going to be chaotic, and some of it will be pins and needles. Tonight I have a young relative's birthday party and other errands, so I'll probably not be able to write tonight either.
     
  17. I wrote a grand total of one page today. Yay.
     
  18. 1760 words. Peace.
     
  19. I'm caught up to 16 pages today, but I still have to type them out.

    I've done no words for the last three days. Extremely tense situation at work, and some family birthday & holiday events this weekend. So I'm taking that breather, but it means I'm pretty much out of Nano at this point.
