Last year during NaNo, I typed 20,449 words before I allowed myself to become stuck beyond my ability to continue. Of course, I figured out how to get past the problem scene about a week before this NaNo, so really, I should have kept going last year. But oh well. Past is past.
This week, I hit 25k. Which is happy for more reasons than one. First, it means I’m on track. I’m actually about a day ahead and by the end of the night, I’ll be further ahead. Second, I have written more words in half a month than I wrote in a whole month last year. Which is worth celebrating. It means I’m improving. Improvement is good.
Now it’s time to get back to work so I can hit that elusive 50k. This year is my year. And I’m going to be showing off the certificate like crazy when I win. I wonder if I could get it put on a t-shirt?
