It’s November 25th. My brother’s birthday. The day that you used to start being able to validate your words and win NaNoWriMo (it was 5 days ago that you could start this year, a date that put pressure on me to really get moving and write more). It is also a day where I have always been able to validate my novel because I have always had my 50,000 words (and then some, usually).
I don’t have 50,000 words…yet.
But I will get there. And I am so much closer than I have been yet. And I’m excited to continue with this story for the rest of this month and maybe into next month. Because while I am close to the 50,000 words, I think I’m just getting into the story. And I want to make it a wonderful story.
But I also want to start reading again – which I haven’t been doing. And this story might be abandoned at the end of the month, to plan a story that would be better and more important to me. I might revisit this story sometime later…maybe. I might just let it lay there for nothing. I don’t know.
But, I wanted to update. And I have. I am on the road to 50,000 words and hope to get there by tomorrow afternoon and validate. I am going to write a little bit more and then I have things to do tonight.
