Falling Behind

My word count for my NaNoWriMo novel has only reached 11,170 tonight (only 659 words for today) and I really am too exhausted to continue. I'm not even going to post an updated stats post in drmellow_novel until tomorrow. As soon as I hit "Post and Close" here, I'm off to bed.

My goal was 12,500. Maybe I can come home at lunch tomorrow and get it up to 12,500 or more and then add my 2,000 for the day tomorrow evening. Or maybe I can just try to keep some momentum going so that when the weekend comes, I'll be able to catch up then.

When I get behind on stuff like this, I have to be careful that I don't make catching up something else that I get behind on. If I do let that happen, I tend to just get even more discourage, unhappy and most importantly, behind.

Good luck.

Yeah, that's what I'm afraid will happen. The good news is that I'm only "behind" because I've been adjusting my daily goals to be more aggressive as I go -- I add 2000 to the previous day's word count, whatever that was. Since I got "ahead" early by 2000 words, I'm doing pretty good. So even though I only wrote about 600 words yesterday, I'm still ahead of schedule if I look at the month as a whole.

And it's rationalization like that which will cause me to slip further behind. ;-)
