NaNoWriMo Days 14-15
Progress has slowed substantially since crossing the 50k mark. I want to finish the story, of course, but I also want to strike a better balance between the novel and my other projects - this isn't the only piece that requires my time and attention. I'm now content to write 1,000 words per day for the novel, leaving the rest of my writing time for short pieces, a new nonfiction project, and some poetry. I've managed to stick with this goal, and it's working well for me. I plan to attend at least one write-in this week as well. As I've said before, those are my favorite part of NaNoWriMo: coming together as a community to write!
