Seven days to go. Only seven days. (I do my writing in the evening, so today still counts for me).
Now, logically, that’s nearly 1/4 of the time for NaNoWriMo. But a week at the start seems a lot longer and more carefree than the seven days when I have to finish my 50,000 words.
I’m doing okay-ish. I’m at 36,645 words, which means that (a) I’m a bit behind, and (b) not so far behind that I can’t catch up and finish. So I need to get cracking. Damn. No excuses available here then.
I’d like to finish before November 30, just to give myself some spare time to validate, order my Winner t-shirt, etc. So my plan is 5,000 words today, then 3,000 per day for the next 3 days. It might sound ambitious, but I’ve done that wordcount several times already this November. I think it’s doable.
So, all I need to do now is stop writing this blog entry and go write a novel. Be seeing you in December, then!
