I intended to finish yesterday/today, but my sister had a sleepover that involved 14 hyper teenagers. Between that and work and being tired, in the end I only got about 200 words written. Bleh.
He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God? -Micah 6:8 KJV
They have shewed thee, O teen, what is good; and what doth the world require of thee, but to fit in, be wealthy, have good looks, and be rebellious? -Peer Pressure 1:1

I don't think I can keep going...I'm so tired, and I can only input maybe 50 words a day with the new schedule...
I need sleep XP I'll be in a coffin if anyone needs me.
"Show me thy ways, O Lord; teach me thy paths. Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day." Psalm 25:4-5

"Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I am desolate and afflicted.
The troubles of my heart are enlarged: O bring thou me out of my distresses.
Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins.
Consider mine enemies; for they are many; and they hate me with cruel hatred.
O keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in thee.
Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee.
Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles." Psalm 25: 16-22

ARGH! I will finish this if it's the last thing I do. And it will be halfway decent!

I'm a lost cause. I'll keep writing as much as I can but 50k isn't happening.

The real reason is I've actually been writing a story that I've set with high standards and don't want to do random fillers that I know I'll just delete in later drafts because of the nature of my story. If it was just writing anything, I probably would be fine, but from the beginning, I've just been using Nanowrimo to force myself to write this idea I've had for awhile so in that sense, I'm already pretty happy with how it's turned out.

Hit 50k earlier today. Not gonna validate till I'm completely done, though. Hopefully Monday. Don't have too much more to write. This is actually going fairly smoothly, strangely enough.

Well, I meet my word count, but I'm not quite finished. I might do some last minute writing to try to finish it off, but I'll more than likely put it off like I did last year. We'll see.

I finished...made it all in one day XD
I feel pretty good, actually.

DONE!

And with only a few hours to spare, thank goodness. I procrastinated so much during the middle of the month I only barely made it. I spent all of Friday afternoon writing, and did 8,000 words, and today I did 7,000. My poor aching fingers! :XD: I feel so brain dead right now, I can't wait until I fall into bed, I'll probably sleep like a rock, haha. But still, VICTORY!

So...my first Nano participation. I felt pretty good, actually, doing it. I have a question for those who do this madness regularly. How do you manage to find time for this, what with having to live a life outside of this (i.e. job, eating, sleeping)? It was...almost impossible for me. How do you veterans manage it?

You don't. If you have a job you work, and then every spare second is dedicated to writing. Eating and sleeping just wait till December.

But seriously, I don't know. It was a challenge, for sure, and I spread myself a bit too thin to pull it off. It's just a matter of making yourself do it even when you're tired.

My recommendation is to find time to write every day, and once you've been doing this for a while you'll know how long you need to write the 1700 words to keep ahead, so you know what time to budget. And make sure you can focus only on writing during that time.


But clearly, that's not what I did this year, since I wote a fifth of my novel in the last two days. Sometimes you just have to write all day a few times.
