NaNoWriMo 2013 Update

We are more than a week into this year’s NaNoWriMo, and I am already behind. I had started out strong, gaining 6,000 by day three… then… Life happened. Or, to be more precise, I’m working two jobs (for a combined total of 38-40 hours a week) and studying for the Japanese Language Fluency Test that’s taking place in December, ALL ON TOP OF NANO.

So yes. I am exhausted. I am also behind in my word count.

But not that far behind. If I push myself, I can probably even make it up today. I’m sitting about about 10,000 (a little less, by last check), and as NaNo’s nifty word counter tells us, I should be at 15,000. So, 5k in one day? I should be able to do that. I might even be able to pull of 6,000, especially considering I have the day off, and no other plans besides catching up on laundry.

Anyway, how are your novels doing? Life getting in your way yet?
