So we’re at day 15. How am I looking? Let’s ask the trusty stats page!
Overall, I’m doing alright. However, I am lacking the fire from previous NaNoWriMo attempts. Let’s look at Camp NaNoWriMo (June):
See the difference? Back in June, I was always above average after Day 1. Not so much the case this month.
Part of the reason has just been this month in general. The month started off with the most brutal few days of work I have ever had. Then the next weekend, a friend of mine gets alcohol poisoning (she’s fine though. It didn’t help she was 1/3 my size!). This weekend I already have plans and next week is Thanksgiving.
I am also just getting tired of Perverse Selection. It’s in a state where there’s a big picture, but not everything is connecting. I’m losing the will to even think about the story, the characters, etc. The end is there, I just don’t know how to get to it.
Do I want to finish it? Of course! But I think I’m just so use to the project, I am craving another story. I can’t tell you how much I miss world building.
So I think after this month, I’m going to give the story a rest. It’s not going in the trash. I just think I need a change of scenery you know?
Here’s to finishing NaNoWriMo strong! Don’t let me keep you guys down!
