Week 1 started out AWESOME. I was averaging around 1900 words per day and feeling very good about myself. There were words flowing, back story being revealed and even plot-like stuffs happening.
Unfortunately I was tired one day and essentially took the day off. Yeah, I can’t do that again. I did continue to write after those first few days. It’s not like I just let it go and haven’t written anything in several days. But I didn’t write nearly enough. The word dump has stalled.
Time to get it going again.
Today is the end of Week 1. Tomorrow starts Week 2 and a Fresh Start. (Not that I’m starting over on the story or, God forbid, starting a NEW story, just that I’m recommitting.)
And my Municipal Liaison for NaNoWriMo gave me a good mantra to use this coming week borrowed from the greatest of cartoon philosophers.
“Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming.”
