Total words: 1457

So I don’t think it’ll surprise anyone (who lives in the States) that it took me a lot longer to get to my computer (today being Thanksgiving and all). I meant to get outside — it was incredibly nice here today — to try and scribble out a few words so that I wasn’t working with, you know, nothing after what I knew was going to be an incredibly long afternoon and evening, but I just ended up getting swept up in the evening and the cooking (even though I was only cooking for two — serious question, how do people cook massive feasts every year like???).

And it was an incredibly long evening, but it wasn’t a bad one in the end, even though I didn’t hit my writing goal for today. I’m just very tired as I’m sitting here writing this now, and I was going to keep trying to push myself through the last little bit and I just thought, you know what, no.

There’s always tomorrow.

So I’m going to go to bed and I’m going to get up and I’m actually going to get to my computer in the morning so I can have a good writing day, but I’m going to enjoy the rest of this evening for what it is and not just, like, force myself to hit 2k just to do it.

It’s frustrating because I keep looking at the number I did write today and I’m like it’s so close to 2k but I also know that, really, the number doesn’t matter and I’m barely keeping my eyes open right now as it is. And rest is important, but just acknowledging that it’s important doesn’t matter if I don’t honour it. So I’m honouring it.

I’ll see you tomorrow x
