I got off to a decent start to NaNoWriMo on Thursday with about 1,200 words. Not 1,600 words like I should be writing each day, but it was a good start for me considering I’ve barely been writing the last two years.
But since then? I haven’t had nearly the stamina I’ve wanted.
Friday night I wrote a couple hundred words before, sadly, I fell asleep. I dozed off with the laptop sitting on my lap some time after 10. It had been a long week of work, but I was emotionally drained with other things going on in my life, including a plugged up shower.
And today I was intent to write during the Rangers game, but once I sat down to watch the game I was again, tired.
And it’s not helping my weekend is one day this week. I’m back to work tomorrow. No time to really catch up on sleep. Hopefully with the time change, I can get some extra sleep tonight.
My intent for doing NaNo was not necessarily to hit the 50,000 words. I’d love to get there, but it’s not my goal. My goal is to get back into the writing habit where I’m working on something every day.
So far I haven’t met my goal.
