NaNoWriMo: Update

So, we’re halfway through November.  Am I halfway through my 50,000 word writing challenge, I hear you ask?  Short answer: no.  I’m not.

I’ve managed to get to 13,083 words.  Now that’s more than a quarter of the way through, so I’m pretty pleased with that, but I’ve got a long way to go.

Last week I had a little moan about not having any motivation and was worrying about my problems with unrealistic-sounding speech.  This week, my characters are a lot less polite, which is a relief, but I’m having serious problems with self-discipline.  I’ve had a week off work, and while you’d think that would give me plenty of time to have a few marathon writing sessions, turns out I wanted to enjoy myself and have a holiday!  Especially as the weather was nice-ish last week.  Oh well, back to work tomorrow, which will mean that I have less free time, and should therefore mean that I find more time to write!  Funny how that happens.

I’m still hoping to complete NaNoWriMo, but I’ll need to churn out more than 2,000 words a day to stand a chance.  Difficult, but not impossible.  I considered not bothering to carry on, seeing as I was so pathetically low on my word count, but a number of Twitter users have inspired me by being equally far behind.

Right, back to getting Chip the hell out of Australia…
