NaNoWriMo 2016 – Day 17 – 51264

The last couple of days have been tough on my writing and I think the root cause of the trouble is I am trying to force myself to write when I am both sick and not in the place to write. As in, I am trying to write when I really should be doing other things.

So I need to take a step back and make sure I take care of the necessities. Take care of those and then get back to writing. Take care of myself too. That’s an important one.

I hit 50k today, which is amazing to me. I remember the other years where I struggled to hit the 50k mark, but this year I managed it in almost half the time. That’s a pretty amazing feeling to me.

My goal of hitting 100k is still out there. I’m pretty sure I won’t make it, but I haven’t given up hope. The bigger issue is that I have concluded I don’t like how the dwarven settlers section is coming along. As a result, I think I need to just accept that I’ll cut it and get back to the rest of the story that I wanted to write. There is still plenty of meat on the bone, so I just need to get to it and figure out how to translate that into words on the page.

My cold seems to be lingering for a little longer, but I was able to read tonight to my son, which I haven’t been able to do in a few days, so that feels like I am almost better. We’ll see how tomorrow goes though.

Rest up. Don’t forget to backup your files.
