NaNoWriMo 2011: Day 22

Yay! I’m off for a week! I do have about 20 minutes worth of school work to do between now and next Tuesday, but otherwise I’m home with family, friends and fictional characters.

Thanks to the brainstorming with Joanna last night [and a bit more tonight], I made some real progress. 1220 words takes me to a total of 26413. The 20Ks are always hard for me, I’ve realized, but once I get through that it seems to flow again. We’ll see what I can get done tomorrow.

With Thanksgiving on Thursday, tomorrow is a big cleaning day. The kids helped me clean some today and will help more tomorrow. I’ll be up late because the turkey needs to go in about 130 am [as best I can tell – about 9-10 hours for a turkey breast in the crock pot], so rather than going to bed at midnight and wake up at 130 to put them on, it seems likely I’ll just stay up and write.

Naturally, my most productive, most creative time of day is about 9 or 10 at night until 1 or 2 in the morning. The problem with that? When the alarm goes off no later than 645 and you’re one of those people who needs 8-9 hours of sleep.

And on that note… it’s bedtime ;).
