I’m Reaching

35,067words behind me, 14,933 to reach the end of the goal of 50,000 words before midnight November 30th. I’m a day behind on my word count, however a four day weekend and less distractions by Friday will provide enough time to catch up. I definitetly don’t need to fall behind another day though!

I’m reaching! I’m cooking Thanksgiving dinner for one and that’s a day to enjoy with my family and I’m struggling with my story! Don’t get me wrong I’ll make it to the end, but now is the time for the great climax to come together. I have to decide who lives and who dies, if anyone.

Macon, my main character, what a surprise right, is recieving help, he thinks, but the outcome hasn’t left my brain and joined him just yet. I’ll need to come up with something in less than 15,000 words and in nine days!

NaNoWriMo is truly a challenge! I’ve come this far! So have many of you! There’s no turning back or giving up. This is it the final push. We’ve come so far and though I’m reaching and maybe you are too, this is the month we finish our novels.

Now there, I said it, now get back to work.

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!
