It’s the end of week 3 and I’m still doing well … ? Better than I thought I’d be faring at this point, that’s for sure. Best be grateful, eh?
I expected my production to dip with my return to work, and there was one day where I only managed 407 words of revision, and two others where I logged less than 1,667 words (1,187 and 1,099, to be specific). Otherwise, though, I recorded over the 1,667 and made up for the shortfall.
There were a couple of stressful days (the ones where I logged 407 and 1,099, coincidentally), but overall, I’ve been trying to manage a better work/life/creative balance. I think it’s working?
Revisions to Reality Bomb and filling in my scene map amounted to 10,451 words.
I wrote another 360 words of short fiction.
And this update is 214 words.
My total for week 3 is 11,025 words.
And my total for NaNoWriMo 2021 so far is 37,831 words.
I’m going to keep doing what I’m doing, I think. No pivot necessary. Of course, I’ll have to watch the work stress. It’s getting better, though.
I hope all my American friends have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!
Until next week, be well and stay safe; be kind and stay strong. The world needs your stories!
