Being the 20th of November today meant that the last days of NaNo are now nearly upon us. There’s only 10 days left, and I have 10,000 words to do. Which makes it all nice and simple admittedly, but I cant help getting just that bit nervous.
I have written more than the word-count on most of the days, so logically there should be no trouble in doing the same for the last 10k. Yet there is something about the looming timescale that just makes everything look that bit scarier and so much less achievable.
That aside, as soon as I have written the 50k words and I have slept off the largest take-away known to man, I will be planning like I’ve never planned before. The word-count per day will no longer be an issue, and seeing as I generally have no idea what I am going to write the next day and certainly have no idea where this novel is going anymore, It wouldn’t be a bad idea just to sit down and figure a few things out.
Until that time comes, I will be doing the best I can to hammer out that word-count and just try to keep things rolling plot-wise
