You may have noticed there was no NaNoWriMo log yesterday. In addition, you may have seen that the weekly Star Wars story was a bit later than usual. You’d have noticed correctly. Yesterday was a full day. The work during the day was expected and so thought that while I may not be able to write all I want today, at least I’ll be able to write something in the evening. At the end of the work day, though, I received a text from a good friend and old house mate, who was having a goodbye party from the house she and I had lived (along with a few other students) for years and invited me over. It had been a while since I’d seen her and since I’d been there, so of course I went. And did not regret it for a moment, had an absolutely great and fun evening. I used the time during my trip back to get at least a bit of writing done
So yeah, another bit of additional delay and some extra work that needs to be done to catch up. I’m not salty about it, though. It sounds a bit bad, maybe, but I’m kid of starting to get used to being behind on my writing. It’s not that I don’t want to get back on track, but I’m not getting as worked up about as I used to do. Sometimes I reach the scheduled words, other times I get way past it and then there are days when I hardly get anything done. Writing progress varies, but especially with how it’s going during most days, I trust that things will at least even out in the end. As long as I write each day, I’ll have the spirit to keep going and finish this!
As for the story itself. It’s really taking shape now. Thankfully, at least with the broad strokes very much in the way I’d been hoping for, but there are also a lot of new elements being introduced as I write, one of my favourites being a character that recently made a first appearance.
Time to write some more now. I’m really hoping to those 1,000 more words out before the end of the day. See you tomorrow, everyone! ^_^
