day nine // monday // 1,906 wordsMonday was pretty ordinary. School, reading, writing, a run, blogging... Oh, and a NaNo song that you totally need in your life.
day ten // tuesday // 2,865 wordsTuesday was pretty typical. We went out to get pizza that night to celebrate a friend's birthday, and then afterwards, I edited most of the evening/night. ;)
day eleven // wednesday // 1,364 wordsWednesday, I had pottery class and church on top of life, school, and editing. Still got some squeezed in though. ;D
I give the magazine a quick yank, expecting it to come free from where it’s cemented into the rack—probably by some kid’s bubble gum. The stupid thing comes free in my hand, but only after avalanching the rack and the rest of its contents into the floor.
My face colors in embarrassment. I’ll never be able to pick all those up. I swallow hard, forcing aside those ideas. Those suggestions of being rid of my excuse for a life in any way I can.
Those thoughts, those whispers in my head that say it’s not worth it. I’m not worth it. You’re not enough…
day twelve // Thursday // 3,991 wordsThursday was pretty ordinary as well. We had some lovely sunshine (<3) and I got loads of editing done. :D Apparently so much that my brain didn't want to do anymore...like, ever...
“Look, this isn’t easy, okay?”
I wince—that was a jab. “I’m sorry, I never met to insinuate that this is easy for you either physically or emotionally. But you can do it and you are going to do it.”
He stands there a minute, brows furrowing. “I’m not sure I appreciate your condescending tone.” He pushes off the wall, glaring at me, but I know I’ve won. “Move out of the way, Lil’ Miss Therapist.”
Grinning over the nickname, I duck back out of the bars and stand off to the side, arms crossed. “Show me what you’ve got, Semper Fi.”
day thirteen // Friday // 69 wordsFriday was, again, a normal day. (See? My life is really boring. I just post the best parts in recaps... okay, kidding. xD) I didn't get much editing done though... I tried to start working on the entirely new prologue, but I just couldn't get anywhere.
I did, however, take a nice walk, snap some good pictures, and wade in the creek. ;D
Also, on Friday night, I lowered my Camp goal from 60k to 50k. I didn't want to—I still really want to get this edit finished this month! But this is what works best for right now, so I'm trying to be okay with that. ;)
day fourteen // Saturday // 0 wordsSaturday...I didn't write or edit a single word. I didn't even open the document. *cries* So what did I do? Exercise, drink Starbucks, write a blog post, drive 4 hours, attend my first ever deaf event, and get lost in a city at 9:00 at night.
Thankfully, my mom was with me, and we made jokes about chickens and Dollar Generals (don't worry, I'm confused too), so all in all it was a good night.
day fifteen // Sunday // 0 wordsAgain, I wrote nothing...but I did reply to emails and comments, go to church, try to stay dry from the pouring rain, and laugh insanely at John Crist videos. (Look him up, y'all. xD)
StatsGoal (originally, for halfway through): 30,000 words
Goal now (for halfway through the reduced 50,000): 25,000 words
Current progress: 20,276 words
Status: Still behind. Even with the lowered goal....
This post feels kind of lame to me, but I can't think of anything else to add... Instead of fretting over it too much, I'm going to go work on my neglected Camp project. xD
How's Camp NaNo going for y'all?!
