Falling slowly off the wagon

I haven't quite landed on my rump in the dirt, but I think I'm hanging on by a thread. The NaNoWriMo wagon, that is. I'm not out yet, just behind. When I get a chance to sit and write, like tonight, I pump out 1500-1800 words in 1-1.5 hours. But life keeps intervening, and I can't write every day. And, unlike last year when I worked fewer hours (and had more scheduled kid nap times to take advantage of), I don't get to double-up on my writing time on any days.

Yikes. Well, I'm still in the running. I'm not out yet. As of tonight, I'm down about 4000 words from plan, an amount I could fix in about 3 hours. We're home for Thanksgiving, and I hope to be able to squeeze a couple of extra sessions over that weekend. And, if I don't quite make 50k by November 30th, I'm still on for 90 by January 26th(?) for 70 Days of Sweat.

You're definitely not out yet, Kristi! You write fast, so I'm sure you'll add to your word count with a couple of free hours here or there. Good luck! I'm rooting for you!

You could always send the kids and hubby down to play if you'd like some peace some evening.
