First of all-I’m not getting to 100k in NaNo. I made the decision last night after several days of feeling incredibly unmotivated and not being able think very well. Oddly enough, I’m not as bitter about it as I thought I would be. I don’t feel much of anything right now. After thinking over my decision for a little less than half an hour yesterday, all my feelings went away and were replaced with this strange blankness. I’m pretty sure it’s not relief, but I have no idea what it is and I still feel the same way eleven hours later.
There are a little over 8,000 words that I have written this month but not counted for NaNoWriMo, and in total that makes 103k this morning. I technically reached 100k two days ago. A few days ago, I would have probably been desperate enough to paste that document into the validator just so I could reach 100k in NaNoWriMo. Now I really couldn’t care less.
So in the last ten days, I’ve written 14,000 words for Sector 01 as well as started working on another unfinished novel. Both are going fairly well, and I’m now feeling more optimistic about them. I am attributing this to this strange blank feeling.
I’m wrapping this up by saying that I’ve completed NaBloPoMo! It was a bit more difficult than I thought, but I still got it done. Hopefully I’ll be updating my blog more often (like once a week) instead of neglecting it terribly.
