Have been really busy and juggling a lot of work stuff. Nano is ending up being squeezed at the end of the day, but at least I'm still keeping up. I'm behind at this point and my estimated date to finish is the 5 December, but I'm hopeful I will catch up.
Day 5: 500 words
Day 6: 1847
Total words I've achieved so far is 8,501. So while I'm behind, the fact is I am way ahead because I'm moving forward with my book and gaining clarity around structure and narrative as I go.
There are still 25 days and as long as I keep dipping my toe in, so to speak, and do some words every day, I will be a very, very happy woman.
