NaNoWriMo 2017 – Day 3

1290 words today.  Started late again.  Long day.  I was tired and I was writing about theatre and representation in other media and it’s probably too heavy a subject to be writing about on a Friday night after a long week.  I struggled to get to 1290 and after a couple of hours, I figured it wasn’t going to get any better.  I decided to be OK with today’s output, get some rest, do what I have to do tomorrow, and then come back strong again in the afternoon or evening.  In previous years, I might have decided I had to get past 2000 words, as I had the past couple of days, or at least to 1667.  But this time around, I let myself off the hook for the night.  NaNo isn’t a sprint and it’s perfectly fine to have leaner days behind the word processor.  I can make up for today down the line, should I need to.  Hey, I should be a writing coach.
