I'm only 1.5k away from my goal of 20k words for this weekend! Managing to stay ahead of the game this time around, and some really great plot development is already occurring, leaving me very happy and excited.
Because things are going so well I thought I'd leave a little advice here too, for anyone struggling to meet today's 15k wordcount goal.
Firstly, this is a tough month for many of us. School can start to seem overwhelming, as projects and papers pile up and final leer at us from the stormy peaks of December. Work stalks us even in our sleep, as a new week surges towards us with every passing minute. Commitments to friends and family fall by the wayside, leaving us starved for attention and drained. Tackling 50k (or more) words during November is a gauntlet of mythic proportions that only those of us actually attempting it can hope to understand.
But there are some tricks to making it through to the end. The shiny golden finish line isn't that far off, really - you can make it if you try, and when you do, you'll feel lifted to the clouds by the bouncy of your pride in your victory.
