This week I'm celebrating:
1) Since last Friday, I got 3 chapters (6500 words) written and 2200 of it revised. Yay!
2) Unfortunately, since I have to finish 11 chapters by the end of the month, that means I must write and revise (can't give my CPs un-revised doo-doo) 3 chapters per week. Piece of cake ... IF the weeks were 9 days long. Which they aren't...
3) Rather than freaking out over my daily totals and beating myself up with the math stick, I'm pretending it's doable.
4) I'm strapping on my Swim Fins, and like Dory, I'm going to "Just Keep Swimming..."
How do you NaNo-ers write 50k in a month?? Are you super-human??
