So I only ended up getting in a little under 500 words written yesterday. Not really a problem, considering my goal for the day was only 1,000 and that means I’m still several thousand words ahead of schedule. Buuut my goal for today, on the other hand, is 5,000. And, after a last minute change to my plan for the weekend, it turns out that there’s no way I have time to do that.
Which means I’m going to be back to being behind by the end of the day, more than likely.
On the upside: the reason I’m not getting much writing done this weekend is because I’ve had fun things going on. Yesterday I spent the afternoon at the Undergraduate English Association’s annual Write-a-Thon at Espresso Royale (where I got very little actual writing done, because I got distracted working on Ch1Con stuff). Then, in the evening, my roommates and I hosted our second annual Friendsgiving (and it was really lovely getting to see friends and eat so much good food, because I basically cut myself off from all social events during November).
And now I’m at my family’s house for the rest of the weekend, because I’m going to a play tonight with my mom and a family friend (and also I will never pass up an opportunity to see Sammy).
All this to say: I’m okay with falling a little behind in NaNoWriMo this weekend, because it’s for a good reason. I don’t know where I’m going to be this time next year. I want to take advantage of this time with my family and friends while I know I have it.
I promise I will do my Mockingjay Part 2 reaction post very, very soon. But I currently need to get some homework done before the play tonight, or I’m going to drown. (Funny how these “responsibility” things creep up on ya, eh?)
I hope you’re having a good weekend, whether you’re getting your words in or not! Only a little over a week left of NaNoWriMo. (I know I ask this every year, but: HOW IS THIS MONTH GOING SO FAST?)
Goal for Today: 5,000 + 500 (from yesterday)
Overall Goal: 36,000
Current Word Count: 35,014
PS. Seriously, who would ever pass up seeing this face.
