NaNoWriMo 2011: Day 20 or the Day I Passed 25K!

Barely, but I did pass it!!!!

I am feeling a bit discouraged though I think it’s normal for both me and many writers at this point. I’m looking at my plot and thinking “How, on God’s green earth, am I going to get another 50 THOUSAND words out of this plot and these characters?! What was I THINKING?!”

Some other stuff discouraging me too – the headache probably isn’t helping 😉 – but mostly it’s looking at this and wondering where the other 50K is going to come from. Especially since the 25K isn’t all that great and a bunch of it is going to need to be revamped completely. And in the revamping, I’ll probably lose more words than I gain.

Ah well. I’ll keep plugging on and slogging through and pray that God will give me the words. Whether now, or later. This book or another. Because I know this is what I’m supposed to be doing. I can feel it in my soul.

But right now, I think my body is saying it’s bedtime ;).
