NaNo Day 16: Catching Up

Today I finished reading Eleanor and Park (really liked aspects of it, but not as much as Fangirl, and there’s legitimate critique about the representation in it), finished the business work I needed to get done this weekend with my amazing mom’s help, then headed home (school-version) to catch the tail end of a local write-in.

I love write-ins. I cannot recommend them highly enough. There’s something about being in a room full of people working their butts off on on the same thing that’s super motivating.

So I’ve started catching up on NaNoWriMo. I’m still behind (I’d need to write another 5.5K today to catch up with my weekly goal and my arm’s already really sore and my brain’s going numb), but I just wrote 4K in an hour and a half, and I’m proud of that.

Here’s to hoping I get in another couple thousand words tonight, along with finishing catching up on homework. And if not: I’m happy to be back at it anyway.

How’s NaNoWriMo going for you? Any unexpected problems/burn out to deal with?

Oh, also: This song was featured in Big Hero 6 stuff and I’m kind of in love with it. Listen if you’re in need of a pump up.

Goal for today: 2,000 + yesterday’s leftover 3,000 + Friday’s 5,000 + Thursday’s 1,000 + Wednesday’s 1,500.

Overall goal: 33,000.

Current word count: 27,568.
