Fallin Slightly Behind

My cold from last week caught up with me. I worked throught it daily, refusing to let it get the best of me during the week. How feeble I must be. Over the weekend I was tired and decided to sleep in late.  So my early morning writing time didn’t happen. I’m not too far behind, 33,373 words puts me just a day, or 1667 words behind. This weekend I’ll catch up. I’m off work for four days!

Macon, my main character has reached out for help. He can no longer carry the burden if he is to save Anna, and I have no idea where to go from here.  There I said it. It’s complicated.

10 days remaining! I am excited for everyone who has met this NaNoWriMo challenge!

If there’s anything I’ve learned during this process it is my weakneses, in writing that is. I’ll figure it out when I read the story. But something is amiss. I have 16,627 words left to complete the challnege and goodness there’s no time now to rewrite anything! So I’ll roll with it.

So to all you Wrimo’s out there, don’t worry about your story just yet. Fight every urge you have to go back and fix anything. Focus on getting to the end and edit later. 50,000 words in 30 days is a lot of imagination at work! Any rewrites will be better handled after a small break! At least that’s what I’m telling myself.

My dream is to become a professional bullshit artist. Or, as others prefer to call them, a novelist. I know, a highly unoriginal and unattainable goal. What's my back-up plan? Ninja fairy. Here's to being disgustingly unoriginal!
