I suck at NaNoWriMo.
Yesterday, I had a nice dinner with my dad and stepmom, and a lovely long chat with my brother. I spent hours upon hours trying to figure out my taxes and finances and come up with a plan for my kitchen repairs. And that was it. I don’t even understand where the day escaped from me. Okay, the dinner I cooked was sort of serious: apple & cranberry stuffed pork sirloin tip roast, with cranberry sauce, cinnamon baked sweet potato rounds, and a salad of mixed greens, roasted brussels sprouts and pecans topped with a warm cider vinaigrette. It was probably a solid hour of prep time, plus another hour of oven checking and flipping sweet potatoes. But still, how did I lose a whole day and finish with no words at all?
I’ve got about 10,000 words of story written and ten days left of NaNo. I’m probably not even going to reach my revised 30K goal. But that’s okay. Today’s a new day and I’ll write today.
