I didn't start writing until two hours ago because I had a family thing today so I'm only at 1.7k but that's on target at least. Hopefully I can get a better head start tomorrow. I'll do what I can tonight.

My brother-in-law gave me some good advice about my number crunching worries though. He said instead of focusing on the word count that I should just set aside a certain number of hours and take breaks whenever I need to. I'm taking a break right now at the moment to eat dinner.

If anyone wants to add me on the nano site my username is Kitahoshi (same profile picture as here).

Considering I've participated for the past four years, of course I'm participating this year... Let's just not talk about my last two attempts, though.

Anyway, after having very little time yesterday, I'm a little behind, so I'm trying to catch up today.

Hahaha... as of today I am 17k words behind. I was really busy last week so I didn't have a chance to keep up with my word count. I am planning to write extra this week to keep up.

The most important thing is to not give up, after all.

I'm trying to not give up, but last week, I had planned to write while I had vacation and welp...it just didn't pan out.

I really don't know if I'll finish this story...though I did start planning out something that features a supporting character as the MC.

I ran into a similar problem. I think what's keeping me going at this point in time is:

1)I remind myself that I was planning to write this story anyway so there's no point in putting it down,

2)It's okay if I don't reach 50,000 words on time - I would be just as proud if I finished it a week or so late because that's about how much time I missed,

3)My husband has a ridiculous backlog of games to get through so it's okay if he spends the next few weeks feeling a little lonely when I need to write in the evenings.

You can add me as a buddy and we can feel less crummy about our word count as we claw our way back to victory, one day at a time.

There's a smaller one during the summer that I might try instead if I'm not still writing the current story by then. I think it's half so it's only 25,000 words.
