Not really, but the month is half over, more or less. So how about a check-in?
I’ve written several scenes and finished a couple chapters, which is huge. I made some key decisions and am getting to play with words much more than I usually do. I’m not going to “finish” NaNoWriMo at 50k words but I am definitely going to have a fully fleshed out novel by the end of this year.
I knew this month was going to be a lot of work, and it has been. I am working hard at my freelancing job and trying to forgive myself for the absolute garbage of a year I’m having, which has been a feat in itself. My partner has been an absolute miracle in most senses of the word, supportive when I need and pushy when I need.
All in all, even though I’m not writing a LOT every day, I am writing some. And that matters. I’m happy with my progress.
