Betcha thought I dropped out, eh?
It's okay, I had my moment of doubt, too. I rolled into Thanksgiving week under 27,000 words, knowing that I'd not likely get much writing done over our trip to Florida. We headed out of town last Sunday; me armed with the AlphaSmart Neo and my novel on a USB flash drive. I managed to squeak out a couple thousand words during the trip, but found it hard to get in the groove.
When I woke this morning and calculated that winning NaNo was going to take more than 20,000 words over the next three days, the fight-or-flight instinct set in and I got down to typing.
I'm ready to call it a night, but feel confident that I'll hit the 50,000 word goal by midnight November 30th. I do have until midnight, right?
Okay, so that's 10,000 words less than my personal 60,000 word goal, but, that's been the story of my life - whatever it takes to get by.
I'll work on behavior modification once NaNo is over.
Thank you for hanging on with me for the ride!
