NaNoWriMo Day 20
Ten days left in National Novel Writing Month.
Ten days to reach 50,000 words.
As you can see from progress meter above, I'm running a bit behind. 21,781 words to go. 10 days. I could let myself feel overwhelmed, pressured. I spent a couple of NaNo days plotting. I'd come to a place where I couldn't go forward unless I had some idea of which way that forward was supposed to go.
Ten days. 21,781 words. Gulp.
I can do this.
I can write 2,200 words a day.
Even on Sunday.
Even on Thanksgiving Day.
Ten days. 21,781 words.
The mountain doesn't look so big when you climb it one step at a time.
PS. Rachel Hauck posted an EXCELLENT blog today on Novel Rocket: "5 Novel Crunches For Tightening Your Middle." It's exactly what I need at this point. Check it out (click on the title)
