NaNoWriMo 2017 – Day 17

After I got done with the 9-5, I was all set to write, but I was feeling tired.  I figured I’d take a nap for an hour.  Two hours later, I woke up, still tired.  Went back to sleep, woke up another couple of hours later.  Read some, then, I finally sat down and wrote.  2012 words.  That brings me to 36778 words total.  Average words per day: 2163.

What helped today:

Resting.  And talking to my HR director at work.  She appreciates my sentence structure.  It’s always good to have your writing appreciated, even in small ways.  At least it is for me.  Your mileage may vary.

What I discovered today:

That when I feel like I need to rest, I need to rest.  I can always come back to the computer or the notebook again and pick up where I left off.  I don’t have to push myself to write when I’m not feeling well.  I never had to.  Oh, the things I believed when I was younger.  

What else was good:

Picked up 7 or so exotic shards from Xur, once I found him.  He was in the tower where you find the Vanguard.  The reading was good tonight, too.
