NaNoWriMo: Day 12: I'm getting tired

My excitement is starting to wane a bit. I think I'm getting a little burnt out. I'm not going to stop, mind you, but I want to be honest about how I'm feeling. I'll do my 1,600 words today, though I'd much rather just watch TV, clean up, and then take a bath. (I'll try to write and then do the latter two.)

I'm taking tomorrow off from writing because my dear friend Gracie is coming to town from Seattle, and Kerry and I are meeting her for dinner after work. I might not get to write on Friday, though I'll try to squeeze some in in the morning, before G and I go off to have some fun in Boston.

Then on Saturday, she's having coffee with a friend to give me some time to write in the morning. She leaves on Sunday afternoon (wah!) so I'll have time to write then. And I took Monday off work just in case I need some more hours to devote to NaNo'ing, so I'm not too worried if I fall a bit behind.

Anyway, that's where I'm at: still devoted, but glad to have some time to spend with some dear friends and to get away from this damn computer. Best Blogger Tips

Thanks Michelle. I'm feeling rather battered and not at all sure I have another 30,000 words in me! How's your writing going?

I have never attempted anything like NaNoWriMo, but I am so inspired by all of those who do it. I am often writing my books on deadlines, too (is there truly any other way?)--and I know that getting away from the computer and spending a day with a friend is almost the very best thing you can do for your book. Your characters need some time alone to sort things out before you come at them again! And, in my experience at least, you'll love them all the more. Best of luck! I'm rooting for you!
