3 hours left and I have finally made it home from the pub… I am watching the livestream from earlier and am put to shame by Jules and Simone who plan to write 7000 today. Made only slightly better by the fact that the presenter Grant Faulkner has only made 12000 – and here I am on 16000+
see what I’m seeing;

1,628 (all this work and I haven’t yet even reached the average day count of 1667 and some of those words were written last night!)

So at this point I have made my word count for the day – and fallen asleep at the laptop twice.
I decide my nano marathon challenge is to make it over 18000 before midnight and to do my best to produce 3000 over the course of Sunday – that way this weekend will have seen about 5000 words.
I play more live stream nano marathon videos.
A good analogy watch it!
You are going to make it through NaNo.
I hit a wall tonight – not with the writing but with the fact that I had spent the afternoon shopping and then in a bar with friends drinking until 8pm and I dosed off and woke up feeling a little worse for wear, in the back of my mind I am thinking I need to write more material for tomorrow’s poets for peace event. I wrote my PAD poetry before I started my Nano write tonight and have just 30 minutes at this point before midnight to write.

So I haven’t exactly achieved a MARATHON amount of words (I will choose to have my own personal marathon in bite size chunks when I have a free day… ) but I set the achievable goal of 18000 and managed that, so I can go to bed proud of myself for meeting my objective even if it was only a 2268 word write. I still need 601 words to make it to 2268 today as some of these were written after yesterday’s count.
I had a lovely day with friends AND got to write another chapter of my story.
