I am participating in CampNaNoWriMo, 30 days of writing for a word count goal of 30,000. Not too hard right?
Well it’s not going too terribly bad I guess. I am not too far behind, I need only another 270 words to meet today’s goal word count of 3000. But I am behind my own personal goal. See I am not a big writer on weekends. I think it has something to do with everyone being home and having so many other things going on that I am just too mentally exhausted to squeeze any words out of my brain. So for me, I need to average a word count of about 1363 words Monday – Friday to meet the goal by the end of the month. So today I should have 4089 words. I don’t.
It doesn’t help that after pushing out 2270 words yesterday (I kind of didn’t write a single word on the first day…) that I woke up this morning thinking that is not what happened at all!! in my story. So today I had to go and fix the problem (because I had written myself into a major wall and couldn’t plow through until I reversed, backing up and rewriting the scene). I am still not complete with my corrections, but I will continue on tonight after the kids are in bed. I had to take a break once school let out and children started requesting things like snack and help with homework. Stupid homework.
