Day 17 – November 17

Goal Passed.

Writing with a goal of 50K in a month has been an interesting experience. I definitely put this particular project first. I would focus on it first thing in the morning and let other projects wait until I reached my daily goal.

I achieved my daily quota every day. That felt good. I didn’t go back and rewrite or edit as I went, which I usually do, so that was a new experience for me. I need some time to digest the process and decide if it was better, worse, or just different than business as usual. I’m going to guess some aspects worked better and some aspects didn’t. I know I blew off Yoga yesterday morning, and that wouldn’t be good in the long run. I’m going back to class tomorrow morning.

I also have a rewrite for Prairie Nocturne to finish. Rehearsals start December 27, so I have time. But still… duty calls. 

For everyone out there NaNoWriMo-ing away. You can do it! That goal is reachable. Stick with it. We’re all in this together.

It’s been fun.
