Yesterday and today I did not update my word count on the Nanowrimo site because:
1. I forgot (yesterday)
2. I got a new tattoo (today)
But over the course of the last few days I wrote 14,231 words which put me at
51,660 words this month!
I honestly didn’t think I could do it, much less do it early but there really is something to be said for not paying attention to the word count and just writing.
There’s a lot that can be said for just writing. Just writing works, worrying about everything else doesn’t. But, as always, it’s hard advice to swallow.
I haven’t completed any of the projects I set out to complete this month BUT I did get a lot accomplished and I look forward to my continued progress into the next year.
Right now my brain is dead so I don’t have anything profound to say about “winning” Nanowrimo.
Here’s a picture of my new tattoo:
It’s a cover up and you wouldn’t notice unless you looked really hard.
