Day 9

Week two of NaNoWriMo is well under way and it’s been a slow haul for me. I got a bit stuck on obsessing over my plot. I honestly don’t really know where this story is going to go. I don’t know what the ultimate climax is going to be, and I don’t know how it’s going to end or how many words I’ll need to finish it. It drove me into a bit of  a funk for a couple of days. I felt like a Bad Writer for not knowing these things, and I still do if I sit down and think about it. But I decided I can either lie here and sulk about my inability to think of anything fantastic, or I can sit my ass down and write until I get there.

So, now that I finally got Butt In Chair and wrote, I’m at 24k. I’m not going to bed tonight until I hit 25k, even if it means I have to start a new chapter and my OCD will go insane about it.

Anyway, things ARE progressing, albeit a bit slow this week. It’s nothing uncommon, week two is infamous for slowing down for most participants. And it’s my first year and all! Aaah, excuses, what would I do without you?

We have these fancy new widgets now that should track my progress. Should, if I do it right. Yay!

    My confession: Beyond being a NaNoRebel, I did a NaNo-NoNo and restarted my second story, thereby suffering through a negative word count for most of yesterday. It was pretty epic.

    I, too, don’t know where my story is going. I had a set plot and issue and all of the sudden flying plot bunnies dropped an egg that I did not see before and a new plot is born.
