So you know how yesterday I said I was going to make myself keep working on the part in the middle?
Well, today, I basically just wrote that later chapter. And I’m not sorry about it, either!!
I teach on Mondays, so I decided that I was going to get my full writing goal this morning and, really, I knew that the best way to do that was to write the scene that I was really vibing with rather than dragging myself through a session trying to write the middle chapter. My brain is basically mush after teaching (even more so than usual), so it was the only way I was going to get through what I needed to write. I did decide, though, to go back and write a little bit in the middle (out in the afternoon sunshine again) once I’d finished teaching, so that’s why my numbers are a little bit higher than usual today.
I think it was a good exercise is compromise.
Other than that, though, I basically just laid on the sofa for the rest of the afternoon and played Pokemon Sword.
It was a much needed break, especially after the true madness of the last week, and I’m glad that I let myself take that time to just play video games and not think about anything for a few hours. How have you been relaxing during NaNo?
