NaNo Day 8

I didn't write over the weekend and I spent the morning at Lulu's school reading with 4 & 5 year-olds so I'm not as much ahead as I was, but I'm still getting there.

My Day 8 word count is 14,295.

I'm 800 words short of where I'd like to be today, but I can make that up in a day of focused writing. What I wrote today is just awful, but it moves the story forward.

What I learned today:
  • The quality of my writing will apparently vary immensely from day to day, but I remember that that is what editing is for.
Now you say, "Duh. Didn't you already know that?"

Nobody commented on my excerpt...

You are DEFINITELY getting there and wonderfully in many ways :) I feel so lazy that I'm not trying to join in on the fun.

Keep writing!! This sounds like a crazy challenge but you are hanging in there. I'll have to read your exerpt. Take Care.

It's hard not to expect perfection. I do it every time I write. I have to keep reminding myself that I need to let go and tell the story. Your word count so far is impressive! Keep up the good work!
