11:34 am.
I am currently behind schedule by about 20,000 words. With my trusty partner, a cup of Starbucks coffee, and a heck of a lot of determination, I am going to try and make a dent in the amount of words I have to finish.
Even with the events mapped out for my story, I am still finding it difficult to accomplish my word goal. While it is true most of the stories I write are full of fluff, the story I am writing for NaNoWrimo is not about entirely romance or some type of major cliche. OK, so maybe there are a few underlying cliche aspects, but for the most part, I tried to make this story pretty original. I mean originality is the point of creative writing, am I right?
4:47 pm.
After taking a much needed break, and having to babysit, I am back at writing my NaNo story once again. Unlike earlier this morning, I have managed to make a dent. I am now only about 15,000 words behind rather than my original 20,000 words.
The fact that NaNoWriMo is a logical procrastination tool means I will be putting off my homework until about nine p.m. tonight. I have roughly four hours and 13 minutes to write the remainder of 15,000 words.
Wish me luck.
