Playing Ketchup, I Mean Catch Up

Well, it took me all day (it is 11:00 PM right now) but I have managed to catch up on my word count for NaNoWriMo.  My word count is now 41,639.  I have no idea how I’ve gotten this far, I just hope I can keep it up.

I wrote the scary bits of the story for most of the day.  It’s dark, but not too dark, and essential for the story.  I finished up the day writing some funny parts, which I enjoy much more.  Hopefully I will be able to post an excerpt tomorrow.

Sunday – I’ve Got Work To Do

Well, I fell behind a bit on my NaNoWriMo project. I only wrote eight hundred words yesterday.  My daughter stayed up a little later than usual and I didn’t get started writing until around 10:30 PM.  I totally planned on writing at that point and even tried, but I found I would start a sentence and doze off halfway through a sentence, snapping back awake not knowing what the heck I wrote.  I think the past few days of late nights and travel finally caught up with me.

My wife has graciously told me I can do some writing during the day today, so I hope to catch up on my writing this afternoon.

Anyhow, thank you all for your words of encouragement, they kept me going on this, especially in the beginning.  Now, I’m so close to the end I have to reach 50,000 words.
