Ok… I don’t think that we can even call it a stumble… this week it was more of being lazy! I went to my local Nano Write-in and met some more great people that are all in the same boat as I am. After that day I came out with a grand total of 17,450 and I was feeling on TOP of the WORLD as they say… which was just enough for me to get cocky, lazy, and not write anything for the last 3 days!
Monday I went to bed easily knowing that I wrote over 3,000 words that day. Tuesday I arrived at home late, had dinner, and while watching tv in bed shortly afterwards I feel asleep. “No Problem”, i thought, “I’m only behind one day.” Wednesday I came home late and fell asleep again. Thursday I had gone out with some buddies from work (my friend Jon is leaving to Mass. so we had to give him a good send-off), and by the time that I arrived at home, 10:30pm, I had just enough time to watch a tv show with my girlfriend before passing out… and here we are… FRIDAY!
The carrot at the end of our stick (aka… the work week). The reason that we keep telling ourselves that we work hard all week for, just to relax for the weekend! The day that we all wish EVERY WORK DAY was! Good ole Friday, and I don’t have anything else to show for it on my word count.
On the positive side… I did write down some interesting plot twist that should make for some explosive writing spurts this weekend! I’m sure as hell hoping that they do! I calculated that by the end of tonight I should have 26, 672 words! So i’m about 9,000 words shy! As long as I have my plot twists on hand… i will be good for it.
Now, I will have to write ahead because I’m planning on going up to NY for the Thanksgiving weekend. I’ll spit out the details later! (the procrastinator in me always wins out!).
So i’ve received some words of encouragement from my two NY buddies… Phil & Johnny… and I just wanted to say that as always, thank you for your friendship and most importantly for your support! Check you later! 🙂
