A summary of my past two days…
Words barfed: 1,872 (56% of Daily Goal)
Total words: 5,042 (75% on Target)
Percentage of words written while I am asleep: 50%*
*This could be inaccurate. I was actually asleep when I calculated it. In fact, I am asleep as I write this.
Late Sunday night, I am torturing myself on the couch, trying to eek out enough words so that I don’t feel like a failure. I know that getting too far behind is kryptonite to Nanowrimo wannabes, so I am at least making sure I have the pace car in my sights.
But this means I am periodically doing word count checks so that I can finally let my poor, ravaged body sleep.
In the middle of writing a sentence, I stopped and checked. Exactly 1,666 words. Goodbye novel, I am going to bed.
I’m not too worried as the sentence probably sucked anyway.
