Camp NanoWriMo Day 7

Current Word Count: 8914
Month’s Goal: 50,000
Today’s Goal: 14,516
Words Needed: 5,602

So I am currently behind on my goal for the month of July! Oh Boy!!!! I have written a sad 66 words since the 2nd. I started out super strong but alas, life has taken its toll again. A/C in my car went out. Had to put it in the shop. Dad went into the hospital day before yesterday.

#amwriting

Complications from a surgery he had in May. He’s good now. He’ll be getting out tomorrow some time!

Now I find out that a girl that works in my department at work is leaving and my store director is transferring stores. So work is a bit up in the air at the moment.

But I know there is no use worrying about things that are out of my control.

Today, when I get off work, gotta go help Mom get the camper packed up. Her and Dad were at the lake when he had to go back to the hospital.

Once the camper is done being packed up and such, I will be burning off to somewhere to write. Depending on the time we get finished, I might be going to Denny’s to eat and write for a few hours.

My goal for today is to get to 14,516. That means that I need a total of 5,602 words written today. I can do that. I wrote 6,206 words on Monday in just about 4.5 hours. So I can totally get the words I need for today to meet my goal!

I have got to get into the mind set of no matter what happens each day, I have to write. Even if I only sit down and write for just a 30 minute session, I have to write! I will be, going forward, making sure that if nothing else, I will write for at least 30 minutes each day!

Gonna shoot for #1k30min goals each day from now on!!

What’s The Old Saying…?

beggars-cant-be-choosers-quote-1

Beggars can’t be choosy? I guess it’s right in what it says. I had asked for November 1st off as a personal day from work as I had one personal day alotment left and it had to be used by November 7th. So I figured, with participating in NanoWriMo this year, I would ask for the 1st off.

Now, two weeks before Nano, money has gotten a little bit tight and they asked me to work on the 1st. I so badly wanted to decline the offer but again, beggars can’t be choosy. So I will be working from 6am to 3pm on November 1st instead of staying up late the night before and beginning to work on my NanoNovel at midnight as I had hoped.

But that’s alright. So far, I haven’t had a November 1st off the entire time I have participated in Nano so it’s really not a big deal. Just a bit of wishful thinking.

It’ll all work out the way that it’s meant to.

Happy Writing,
Jeremy 🙂
