Writing, Family and More
Today was a remarkably much better day than yesterday. In case you didn’t know, I am not a fan of Mondays. Recent Mondays have been worse than normal, but in general they are my least favorite day of the week. I don’t have a case of the Mondays, I just don’t feel much good comes out of Mondays in general. I mean, they start the work week and announce the end of the weekend. I like my job, but that doesn’t mean I would do without one if it wasn’t required.
Anyway, productivity is my Tuesday. I got all manner of things done for work today and got some great news for my team again today, so that just put me in a great mood to start.
In terms of writing, the NaNo-novel is coming along nicely. I am very aware of the fact that it might end sooner than later, but I am having a good time writing the scenes I am working on right now, so I can’t complain too much. Case and point – I was through my 1800 words in about 35 minutes tonight. When the story flows out of my head like that, I can’t help but get happy about it.
That all said, I am back at a point where I need to make a choice about what happens next. I am well beyond the outline I had started with for the month and while I know the eventual end goal, I am hoping to spread the ending out over the course of the next 16000 words so that I don’t have to add scenes in the middle. The actual climax can happen, so there is some ending to go afterward, but I don’t want to have the climax at 35k and have to drag things out for a while after that. So I need to pace myself or consider where I am going to fit in some extra scenes if I need to.
Work continues though. 11 days of writing left. The goal is in sight! Happy writing!
