NaNoWriMo: Almost half-way update post!

The Countdown ClockGood Morning Wrimos!

It’s been a slow week in a lot of ways. I didn’t get much writing out in the weekend due to work commitments and I didn’t do much better on the blog updates either. I have my Red Dwarf X post coming up but that’s not finished yet, so instead I have to tell you all about my NaNoWriMo hurdle.

Basically I’ve fallen behind.

I didn’t write anything on Saturday or Sunday, then I left it until way too late on Monday and so my wordcount went un-updated for three. whole. days! Shocking, I know. It knocked my average a bit, but I’m back on the horse now. I’ve written about 3500 words in the last 24 hours which doesn’t come close to catching up but if I can just swing 2000 words a day from here on out then I should be fine. Things will get better after next Saturday though as I’ll be completely free from the rest of the month.

I’m still feeling good about it this year. I haven’t written as much as I did last year yet, but I’ve only just fallen behind which is much, much better. On top of that, I’m finding it a lot easier overall and so I’m pretty confident that I’ll get it all done and dusted by the 30th.

I’ll see you all at the finish line,

Owen.
