Camp NaNoWriMo – Day 12

In my usual way, I am being far too harsh on myself. Today I hit the 30k mark but I know I’m five thousand words behind where I expected to be. If I had kept the marker at 50,000, as is the goal for anyone else doing the National Novel Writing Month challenges then I would be well ahead of the curve, both for my target and for anyone else involved. I feel like I’ve lost a lot of traction and I’m going to struggle to make it back.
It’s funny to me that it’s the weekends, when you would think I have the most time, that I could get this writing done. That’s simply not what happens. My weekends are full of great things but it doesn’t leave enough time for me to disappear off and write for a couple of hours.
Let’s keep in mind that I’m doing it, I am looking after myself and that there is no obligation here except the one in my own head. Set it free.
