Starting word count: 57865
Ending word count: 60210
Total words: 2345

I wrote my words this morning (I can’t believe that I’m on such a roll with that — hopefully I haven’t just jinxed it) and then didn’t have time to sit and reflect before sliding into work and now I have no idea about anything.

Brain. Hay. Ugh.

I worked more on chapter 14 today and even though I know that, at this point, it’s running really long, I still haven’t decided to cut it into two. I think I already know where I could cut it, so I don’t know why I haven’t? Actually, you know what, let me go do that now.

Okay, done.

I know you didn’t see anything, but trust me. It happened. I’m only a few lines into chapter 15, but I know, roughly, what I need to get out of the chapter. It’s hard (or it’s going to be) not to scoop myself and start talking about things that I end up talking about in ch16/17, but, honestly, even if I do, there are always the edits.

I feel like that’s my NaNo motto. You’ll edit this, you’ll edit this, you’ll edit this.

It’s nice to give myself the permission to be bad, you know?

Let’s be friends on NaNo! Or listen to my project writing playlist!
