25,504 words — but I’m about 3000 words behind

It’s been a tough week as far as writing time goes.  There has just been so much else going on, none of which I will bore anyone with.

Suffice it to say I can’t wait for the weekend.

I am hoping to get to 34,000 words by Sunday night.  Then, there will only be 10 days left in this challenge and the big push will be to finish the book realistically.  At the moment I’m contemplating writing complete gibberish just to say I managed to write 50,000 words, but my conscience won’t let me.  Damn thing.

It’s tougher now than I thought it would be.  Trying to weave that cohesive thread throughout a story that’s coming directly off the top of my thin skull is more than just a little challenge.

Anyway, I’m tired, so I’m going to bed.

Thanks to all those who have wished me well.  I appreciate it immensely.

    What matters is that you got something down – and it seems to me you’ve got quite a lot already. Well done!

      Thank you Tilly — it just seems like the month is flying by and I’m beginning to have a bit of a panic.

    You NaNoWriMo warriors impress the hell out of me. You are a hero simply for taking on such a challenge.

    Kathy, you’re doing an amazing job. I can’t believe NOvember is passing so fast!

      Thanks Kate, but once again the best laid plans — I’ve got a cold now and feel like crap — hopefully tomorrow I’ll get some more done.

      You know what they say — at least you tried, and really in the end that’s all anyone can or should expect.
