The second Saturday of NaNoWriMo arrived and by this time has nearly gone and yet again my word count has not increased as much as it could have done. Thankfully, I got up at around 05:30 this morning and managed to slam out 1000 words before anyone else got up. Since that time my fingers have scarcely touched a keyboard let alone typed.
My plan was to break past the 30,000 word count today so that I could spend all tomorrow playing Elder Scrolls V. I finished this morning at just over 28,100. Giving me 1,900 words to write tomorrow until I’m allowing myself to play it.
Thinking about the lack of word count, a similar thing happened last Saturday as well. Though, as I recall I didn’t write anything last Saturday, so at least there’s some improvement.
Saturdays are just not good days for me at the moment. It’s not because I don’t have any spare time, in fact far from it there is very little I do on a Saturday.
I can only assume that my lack of get-up-and-go from a writing perspective is mostly down to the fact that I don’t have much of a reason to get my brain hurtling around in 5th gear as I do on the other six days of the week. My mind ambles around as if on a country drive, with, admiring the view bu not getting anywhere quickly.
I need something to get my going something that I can do on Saturday to help me keep my mind on edge, something to help the word-count flow.
or maybe, just maybe, I should chill the hell out and relax. Maybe I should have a day where I’m allowed to smell the roses. It does seem so wrong though.
