Another day, another excuse for not putting up my Mockingjay – Part 2 gush-rant. I’m not getting to start this post today until close to 11:30 PM and I want to make sure it goes up before midnight, so my movie reaction post will have to wait, once again, for tomorrow.
In the meantime, though, my (shorter and more organized) review of the movie is now up on [art]seen! Check it out here.
After the play last night (it was a murder mystery dinner theatre; very fun), I ended up getting a little over 1k in on NaNo, which actually did ultimately bring me up to my goal for the day of 36,000 words, thanks to my marathon-writing on Wednesday. I meant to write a bunch today to get ahead again, but homework and work-work and life in general got in the way, so I only got like another 1k in. (Totally not a problem, since I didn’t have any writing scheduled for today anyway. But yeah. I had been hoping to push ahead to 40k.)
We’re in the home stretch of NaNoWriMo now, with only eight days to go. I have 13,000 words left to write. Fingers crossed, but as long as nothing comes up, I should be able to finish by Sunday as planned (leaving Monday–the last day of November–as my contingency writing day).
NaNoWriMo so far this year has been a lesson in being a
pack writing mule (as in: it takes a lot of stubborn determination to slowly jog towards a goal over time, rather than sprint for it all at once).
Here’s to the last week. Let’s make it a good (aka productive) one.
Goal for Today: 0 + 5,000 (from yesterday)
Overall Goal: 36,000
