NaNoWriMo 2017 – Day 29

Almost unbelievably so, I started writing at a reasonable time.  That was after eating and falling asleep right next to my notebook and laptop.  I didn’t sleep too well last night and during the day at the office, we were moving network cables from one cage to another.  It only took a couple of hours at most, but it was deceptively strenuous.  At least we got it done.  There are many stories from when we put those cables in there 10 years ago.  I wrote about that one of the days during the month.  I’m grateful that I get to carry so many good stories with me.  When it’s all said and done, when we’ve moved on and we’re looking back, that’s what we’ll have.  As a writer, it’s my stock, it’s my gold.  I’m grateful for that.

Today’s output: 1648 words. That brings me to 57461 words total .  Average words per day: 1981.  Today’s writing was part 4 of an essay I started a few days ago about my first forays into acting.  More stories that I’m glad I carried with me.

What helped today:

Taking a nap before I wrote.  It meant I finished later, but it was worth the time.  And I still started at a good, earlier time.

What I discovered today:

How much my new morning routine is really helping me stay in good spirits all day and readiness to create, later in the day.

What else was good:

Talking to my mentor about the future.  We both have great projects ahead.
