NaNoWriMo Day #16

I had a minor domestic crisis derail me today, and didn't get much more time to write than ten or twenty minutes here and there this morning. It's frustrating because toward the end I felt like I was really starting to roll again.

Lots of little details had to be dealt with in today's pages, and during my editing session tonight I decided I wasn't happy with one transition and marked that for a full rethink/rewrite once the book is done. When I have big chunks that make me unhappy I'd rather wait until the end to tackle them because I'm too close to them on the first edit; I do a better revision once I've had a few weeks away from the problem.

When my progress is slow like I don't feel like I'm accomplishing anything, but I was happy to count up ten finished pages tonight. Only felt like I wrote two or three, to be honest. But tomorrow I should have the house to myself, and I'm planning on immersing myself in the NaNoNovel for the entire morning. I need a good four or five hours of steady work to get back where my head was last week.

Today's Stats:

Wordcount: 2174
Total Wordcount: 36593
Pages: 10
