I’m not even talking about today, because I haven’t written yet today.
I took yesterday off. I had a headache and was exhausted and just decided not to stress over it. I have the weekend ahead of me and that’s my best writing time for NaNo. Of course, I woke up with the headache still, but hopefully it won’t be too persistant.
Thursday I had a decent day. Didn’t quite hit my daily quota, but still made progress.
7419 / 50000 words. 15% done!
So I’m not kicking ass the way I used to in the early years of NaNo, but I’m plodding along, and a Twitter friend poked me with Neil Gaiman’s NaNo peptalk at just the right moment to persuade me to write more one night. I’ve got my first scenes set in the past written, and I’m no longer as afraid as I was of doing those, though it’s hard to say how well I’ll do representing the Roaring Twenties, which will be my next scene-in-the-past.
In fact I have yet to research how 1920s America would treat a Society woman who refused to marry or name the father of her two children. >.> Priscilla’s a maverick, but I don’t want her to be unrealistic. Heh.
