To finish on time, I’d have to write 2,825 words per day, but I have family commitments tomorrow and I don’t write on Sunday. So I actually have only four writing days left, which means I need to shoot for nearly 5,000 words per day. Huge time commitments hanging over my head make this look impossible.
This may be the first year I don’t win NaNoWriMo.
Yesterday was a wonderfully full day of worship and fellowship (and food). With no spare time, I decided to give myself a birthday break from going to exercise. After 66 days in a row, I broke my record.
So today I feel like a loser on the NaNoWriMo front. And because I broke my exercise record, I feel like a loser on that front as well, but not because I’m losing weight!
Yesterday I made the decision not to become obsessive about exercise by focusing exclusively on worship and family. This month I tried to prioritize fiction writing, but work, church, and family commitments consistently trumped word count.
Four more days. No more time to lose!
