Mega #laterlog. [2/2]
I set a Camp #NaNoWriMo goal for this month of 10,000 words. At the time I started Camp, I was 3,000 words into a story I intended to finish at ~6,000 words. The idea was to finish up that story and then write another #shortstory for the rest of the month.
But I cannot for my life write a short story.
I met my Camp goal on the 23rd and hadn’t yet finished the first story. I’m now up to 12,500 words written this month on only that one story, and I suspect that word count is low (estimating 600 words/page on the typewriter). This may become my second novella.
I’ve been trying to form a habit of writing a page each morning before work. I’m currently on a 7 day streak. It works out nicely because there are no distractions in the morning. People are asleep or at work, the computer is off, the phone doesn’t ring. It’s just me, my typewriter, and a cup of coffee, and it frees up evenings for coding, gaming, reading, etc.
I’m on page 782 of The Stand and 9 hours into SOMA.
