NaNoWriMo 2017 Diary | Week 3

According to the official NaNoWriMo chart, I’m about two and a half days behind schedule. This is after taking four days off last weekend.

That’s not great. I’m not thrilled about it. But I’m not in panic mode, either. I can still make it through the month, and hit 50K - I could take weekends off, and my current pace would still carry me through.

So that’s kind of good.

National Novel Writing Month is an intense experience, creatively. And I love it for that. I love that it forces me to sit down and write - which is something I want to be doing anyway, but never seem to make the time for.

The downside? It’s an intense experience, creatively. Especially at the beginning, when I’m still finding my way into the story, it uses up pretty much all of my creative energy.

It turns out that getting three colds in the span of a month - and dropping Thanksgiving in in the middle of that - doesn’t exactly do wonders for my creativity or productivity.

Who knew?

So… yeah. October wasn’t a fantastic month.

Really, I’m fine with it. It wasn’t great, but in general, I’m happy with what I have been getting done under the circumstances.
