Gaargh! NaNo is killing me this year! I’m sweatin’ to get to 25K words, and already I’m better than 2 days behind. This is honestly quite frustrating. The only hope I have of catching up are my two overnights next week. I’ll have plenty of time Monday and Tuesday to write, given that I don’t have any classes to prep for this week. On the other hand, I’m staring down the barrel of Thanksgiving Day with its requisite travel time, and wondering how on earth I’m going to get far enough ahead to enjoy the holiday without drifting back to the computer (for which crime I’m likely to be shot, stuffed, and served on a platter myself!).

On a positive note, I’ve come up with solutions to two different novels that have been a little hamstrung–though I haven’t had a moment to really do anything with the information because I’m so frickin’ busy trying to get caught up on this NaNo novel.

Then again, this is why I’ve taken up the challenge. I know I need to write more faster, and this is the best way I can think of to get myself to that point. All right. ‘Nuff said. I gotta get back to work. Maybe I can get myself within a day of my target if I crank at it.
