NaNoWriMo, Day 20: Traction Control

I’ve written about 2,150 words today, bringing my total to just over 28k, or about 5k shy of today’s goal (33,340). At this point, I have two main objectives:

  1. Don’t fall any further behind.
  2. Close the gap.

To a certain extent, I’ve met both of those objectives today. However, I’d like to get another 2k written before I turn in tonight.

Laura, by the way, is doing better than I am at this point. She spent most of last week several thousand words behind me, but really made a big push since about Thursday. When last I checked, she was just under 2k shy of the daily goal. She’s in the middle of writing a difficult scene right now, so I’m trying not to bug her.

If you’d like to see a my NaNoWriMo user profile, a nifty bar graph that tracks my progress since 01 November, and an even more nifty excerpt from my as-yet untitled novel, have a look at this page.
