A more dishonest version of myself would backdate this post and pretend I remembered to write a blog entry for November 21st. But I’ll get my ticket punched and board the fail train once again. I expect to board it one more time on November 30th because I am now way behind on NaNoWriMo and it’s highly unlikely I will catch up.
I was at the coffee shop for about an hour and a half on Thursday and managed to squeeze out a meager 300 words. It’s extremely frustrating as I’ve been saying since November 1st, but I’m glad that I’ve been getting a better feel for my characters and their conflicts. My plan after November 30th is to keep going to coffee shops and plopping down for two hours with nothing but my story open in front of me. Sure I might only write 50 words, but at least I’m dedicating time to the craft.
