Well, best laid plans didn’t work out. Unfortunately by heat broke last week and I had to take the day off to deal with that, leaving me with not enough vacation to take all the time I wanted. That combined with my boss not being in, I had to cover for her, so it just wasn’t possible. I’m still earning my reputation at this job, so I can’t afford to be as frivolous with my time off as I used to. But maybe next year.
I did stay up until Midnight to start, like I do every year, and managed to get in 441 words before 1am (I had to go to bed then, not only was I too tired to be useful, but I had to get up at 5:30, so I needed to get some sleep). I then managed to write another almost 1400 words at work, bringing my total for day one to 1812 words. Not too bad. I meet the first day goal and exceeded by some. Now I just have to maintain, all though it would be nice to do even better.
My goal for this Nano is just to get as many words down on the page as possible, towards as many projects as possible. I have so many ideas floating around in my head, waiting to be written but I have a lot of trouble getting the time to write them down. This is my time to push through that block and make some real progress. I want to make this competition work for me, and get as much done as I can. I’ll keep a running tally of what’s going on for each project I work on, so you all can see how much I’m working on the projects you’re looking forward to seeing.
