We are a third of the way through the month already and it’s hard to believe it sometimes. While it feels like I’ve been writing forever and with over 62k words, it’s probably a pretty accurate assessment of how I feel. But I’m still behind and continuing to fall even further behind as I keep writing just over 1667 words a day right now.
There is some good news in the coming week. Since I normally work on Thursdays I get two days off in a row because of Thanksgiving. And considering that I plan to keep the face stuffing to a minimum this year, I shouldn’t succumb to the food coma that comes from the big feast. With any luck I can bang out 10k on Thursday and 10k on Friday (and make at least on Friday this month live up to a day off standard).
While I did spend a few minutes last night writing a short story for my Fantasy world, I have returned to the Space Opera 3000 today. I’m going to try and ignore the fact that some of my science might be a bit on the shoddy side and just promise myself that I can go back and fix it later once I start reading up on things in December. So I’m crossing my fingers and hoping that I can quell that inner editor for just ten more days.
Now it’s time to get back to writing so that I can at least hit 1667 words today, so I won’t feel like a complete failure.
