I have a niggling feeling that I am going to have to succumb to lowering my word count this summer. I had not properly factored in a realistic schedule around moving, unpacking, cleaning, decorating etc.
This morning – spurred on by an article in the top of my reader promoting a vampire paperback, I was inspired to do some research!
An hour of research later and I FINALLY feel I can finish the story!
So that’s what I will do next.
Planning on UPDATING this Nano post throughout the day! SO POP BACK!
…. and 25000 to go to target (in 10 days!)
5 Hours later – I have had a picnic in the garden, done laundry, checked my emails and helped Mr G sort a drainage issue – opened 8 boxes unpacked half of those and found the home file I was searching for (which has important paperwork for flat sale), footwear and clean towels!
Have I written – no – have I researched -Yes- there is still some time left today to make it to camp!
So, how do you need another 25,000 words to get to 10,000?
I have written over 10000 my target was 35000 I haven’t been able to write for a week so I owe a lot and now have 9 days to write the final 25000 words!
Ahhh I see. Thanks 🙂
I think I was falling asleep on the laptop when I wrote the original post – it isn’t very clear! 😉
Not your fault. My not reading properly
I managed a few 1000 words before bed last night fortunately on the way to catching up. Hope to have a mammoth write on Friday!
At least you’re getting there
True! And who knows it may happen and if not I will readjust my word count if I am within the time to do that. Just printed off my NaNo Certificate for April where I did manage 54000 words and have been recovering from it ever since! 😛
