Quickie post...

Ok. I figured this would be the case and sadly it is.

When I first decided to do NaNo I knew I needed to count only 5 days a week instead of 7. No, I never planned on taking weekends off (I'm a mom, what are weekends?), but I do coach on Tuesday and Wednesday nights. I figured I wouldn't have time to write on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and that seems to be the case. Unfortunately I fell into the '1667 words a day' rhythm.

I wrote some yesterday-- not quite 1300 words-- but it wasn't the 1700 needed each day. Today I've been spectacularly useless. I have written nothing! Not that I don't want to write, because I really do, it's just that I can't seem to get my 'real' work done.

I start teaching a new fitness class tonight. And I think I may have caught a stomach bug. Fun times.

So I'm not going to beat myself up-- after all I'm doing way better than I thought I would. Instead I'm going to try to catch up. If I'm not completely dead tonight (which I probably will be) then I'll write tonight. If not, I'll use the next few days to catch up.

Now I'm off to get ready for my new class. Happy writing!!


  1. No worries! NaNo's all about boosting that word count. Even if you don't reach the 50k, you'll have more than you expected! Have fun with it :)

    1. Thanks, Jemi! I tell you, I already feel awesome that last month I barely had the spark of an idea and now I have over 9000 words. I can't say I've ever written that much in one week!

      I was ready to write last night... until I ate and showered, then I was dead (and today I'm a bit sore-- it's been years since I've taught cardio, too). But today I'm back to it and I'll see how far I can get.
