So you think you can NaNo... Day 4, 2013

I'm on target because I'm awesome like that!

Of course, I have "word wars" and "writing sprints" with Jaclyn Aurore to thank for today's success.

Distractions included, but weren't limited to:

  • the refrigerator repair guy stopped in for a visit
  • not one, but two boys missed their buses today, and 
  • a short visit from a good friend. 

And then, there was this in the mail:

Hercules is a budgie... How he managed to send mail without using a carrier a pigeon is beyond me.

So - today's word count came to 1, 894, for a grand total of 6, 957 to date.


  1. lol Hercules sent you a threat really...

    thanks for doing word sprints with me today - you challenged me and as a result i got my count up more than 2k higher than it was yesterday

    remember, your word count might feel small in the grand scheme of things, but you're in target - the minimum is 1667 words per day, and you beat that!

    1. A threat - that's exactly what I was thinking!

      In previous years, I pushed myself to do at least 2000 words a day, but by week four I would slow to a crawl, and be forcing myself to write. 1667 *feels* like a more gentle pace. :)
