On the whole, though, I’d say the first week has been a success. Taking a day or so off shouldn’t kill my momentum. I need to think about what each of the three viewpoint characters is going to go through next to get them where I ultimately want them to end up.
Well, I’ve managed to write every day of the first week of NaNoWriMo, although I haven’t quite made the daily goal I set out for myself when I started. As of right now, I’m 2,000 words behind and have written just over 12,000, or to put it another way, I’m basically one day behind. The weekend wasn’t good for writing, so I didn’t make my quota every day. Tonight isn’t looking good at all. My son’s final soccer practice is this evening; they’re playing for the championship this weekend. I’ve got a stack of exams sitting here that I need to finish grading before tomorrow morning. If the morning goes like today and yesterday did, then I can’t count on finding time to grade in the morning.
