Time is rapidly running out with November 30 looming ever so darkly . . .

Wrote 2157 words in just over an hour, which is not bad, and at least puts some more words in the proverbial bucket. Tomorrow looks to be a bear if I’m going to try to catch up (10,000 words in a day? Sure! <choke, gasp>) and have any hope of finishing the 50,000 words by midnight on Wednesday.

I’m torn—do I nearly kill myself trying to finish before the official deadline, or do I accept that Life Happens and continue to work at a more human pace (figuring I’ll finish by next weekend)? Regardless, it will take less than thirty writing days to complete the first draft, so there’s something to be said for that. At the same time, I’m wanting to have this draft DONE so I can get back to other projects that have been suspended (like publishing that flash fiction collection). And getting the Nanowrimo “WINNER” badge wouldn’t hurt my feelings.

Decision, decisions.

The only surprise today was actually getting some time to write.
