NaNoWriMo Day 6 & 7# – One Week in & 8 Days Behind!?

Standard

Well I have fallen asleep at the laptop three times this morning trying to add to my manuscript! I have now given up and will treat myself to a Sunday Snooze and hopefully write more later. I have managed over 1200 but as I didn’t write or log anything yesterday – my 215 words down has grown to 2251!

Not a lot I have the power to change at the present. The workshop & lack of sleep Friday night have wiped me out!

I am only racing against myself…. I am only racing against myself!…I am only racing against myself…. I am only racing against myself…

I managed to spend lots more time on the manuscript this evening on and off and have now written more than a days worth – unfortunately I am still a day behind, having had Saturday off from the m/s. Oh well, I knew that it would be like this. I am away next week and so will probably end up with an EVEN larger deficit of words next week! Then it’s back to work. I have made it over 10,000 words 1/5th of the way to target! I have written at least 8000 more than I would have done if I hadn’t signed up to camp! 2013-Participant-Lantern-Facebook-Profile

  1. You are certainly working hard. You sound a bit exhausted. I got chronic fatigue overworking like that and was ill for years. Do take care. Sometimes less is more. 🙂

    • Thanks Suzanne, I am overdoing things a little – I am off work this week and wanted to make headway with the writing whilst I have the chance. I hear what you are saying though and so did my writing brain, last night in NaNoWriMo Camp Mode I was trying to complete the chapter, but it was late and I added the wordcount I had managed – which was still way over 2000 words for the day. It’s like school or work – if you miss a day you just have to log it as a missed day. You can’t get those hours back. Move on. I recognise that now. I was ill last year and am still recovering and on meds so I need to listen to the voice of reason in my mind more.

      I am about to take a break for a few days visiting a friend – which is perfect.
      I think I am still recovering energy levels from the workshop.

      • Take care. When I saw you were doing the NanoWrite I looked at the site and almost joined in. (I had just finished my book the day before). I’m glad I didn’t now. It’s good to have some time to just write for fun and respond to writing challenges when the mood strikes. Hope you enjoy your time with your friend.

      • Thanks Suzanne. I remember that you had just finished a big write. I have never tried something like NaNoWriMo and like I have said I can’t afford a writing retreat.
        Maybe you can have fun @ camp in July, I shouldn’t moan as I am not selling the experience well! It is of benefit to get writing started – I think it is because I am cheating and writing non-fiction, I plan to give it another go in July and work on a Novella from start to finish with a lower word count and bags more Camp fun! 😉

        Having a great time with my friend thanks. I am so glad we managed to meet up before the summer. Just what we needed.
