NaNoWriMo: Day 18 or “The Day-After-10K-Day Hangover”

I did it!!!!!!!!!!!

I hit 10,000 words yesterday!!!!!!!!

Barely, but that’s all that matters ;). I also quit about eleven so I probably could have gone on a bit longer but my brain was fried.

And it still is. It’s not uncommon for me the day after a big day like that to have a “small” day. Today hasn’t been nearly as small as some days [like that whoppin’ 34 earlier this week], but I should get past the NaNo minimum of 1667 a day. I’m almost there now.

Today, I am thankful for my newly formed critique group, though we haven’t done MUCH actual critiquing for each other yet. Stacey, Kristy, and Joanna are amazing women and I am so glad God has brought them alongside me, and me alongside them, for this journey.

Plus, Stacey helped me out of a sticky plot point earlier, and Joanna lets me whine to her about my characters in IM almost daily. I’d whine to Kristy more, but she’s gonna have a baby here in the next couple weeks and I figure I shouldn’t ;).

Day 17: 10019 words
Total: 35146

I’d like to hit at least two thousand today and I’m getting to the good stuff. So back to work!
