I started NaNo so well, I really did. I somehow, miraculously, I was doing 2K a day. But once I hit about 30K things went downhill. Probably because that was when I hit the end of my plot. For revenge stories, you'd figure getting it would be the climax, not the halfway point :/ Before I knew it, writing had somehow turned into a chore. There were a couple of days I was even luck to get 500 words done.
And now, my novel just feels like a mess and it's as if I'm trudging through thigh high snow. And there totally was a sex scene that wasn't supposed to happen. And somehow I feel as if my characters switched bodies. The one who has had minimal human contact for 10 years should be the stoic one with emotional difficulties.
What I really want to do, is work on different writing projects. I've never spent so much time focused on a piece - ever and it's just this one I'm tired of and not writing in general (which is the best thing ever, cuz if I got sick of writing I'd be a couch potato...well, without the laptop). But I know this month not being a walk in the park is what will make NaNo's achievement sweeter once I actually hit 50K. There's not much left now, and I'm determined to muscle through it. Even if it means turning into a computer zombie. I swear, most of my month has been me staring at the blinking line in Word. Or the brick wall of the local coffe shop.
I did manage to take a little NaNo writing break. I played journalist and interviewed a professor about his involvement in the up coming Mars mission. It was fun, and the two days afterword my word count wasn't that pitiful.
Hopefully the bit of fun to be had later this week over Thanksgiving will help me push through to the end.
I hope my fellow WriMos are all doing well! This is the month we all die and come back to life...why aren't we doing this in conjecture with Easter?
