Well as day 5 of this years NaNoWriMo draws to a close, I feel very behind on my word count. When it comes to NaNo when you start to fall behind on your word count it can be very hard to catch up, fall behind by more than three days and you have more 4,500 words to catch up on to stay on target.
Ordinarily I’d be ahead on my word count as the meet on the first Saturday would have seen many word wars that would have gotten my word count to a healthy few thousand before the day was out. Of course the subject matter of this year doesn’t help, but that is hardly the point.
Trying to find a day when I can just sit down and focus on it may be the answer but then again, that seems to be what we all say when we are trying to get round to something we know just won’t happen.
