NaNoWriMo 2017 – Day 21

Wrote late, again.  I made an honest effort to write earlier, but I ended up having to make some trips around town and then rest some before I could even try to sit down and bang some words out.  But, bang I did.  

Today’s output: 2287 words.  That brings me to 44161 words total.  Average words per day: 2102.  5839 words to go.  Average words per day needed to reach 50000: 648.  I might be done by the end of the work week.  Not that I’m going to stop writing that day.  I do plan to continue writing through November 30, even if I’m not working on this specific project.

What helped today:

Somehow getting a burst of energy from sitting down here at my Chromebook and working.  That, and I was working on a continuation of the essay from Day 20.  I didn’t have to think about where to start.  That’s often a tough thing.

What I discovered today:

I started hiding very young.

What else was good:

My morning reading was good, as was my journaling.  And I ended up listening to a really good spiritual lesson on podcast while driving.  It helped immensely with keeping my mood up and in some ways, helped to set the stage for this evening’s writing.
