I am taking a page out of a friend’s book.
She wrote a post a day or so ago about how discouraged she had become over her word count in NaNoWriMo. LINK
I have also found myself becoming discouraged about my word count and I realized something this morning
(after she pointed it out to me…again)
I AM NOT BEHIND!
Yes, I have made my personal goal a bit higher than the daily goal that NaNoWriMo sets for us.
Yes, I have missed the mark a few days on my own personal daily goal
YES, I am ahead of where I need to be to win NaNoWriMo. And THAT is the important part of this challenge.
The important thing is that I am succeeding at NaNoWriMo! Have I reached my own personal goal of 25,000 words for today, No. But I’m darn close (19,194). And I am ahead of what NaNoWriMo’s participant goal for today is (16,670).
So why am I complaining!
Cause I’m a doofus, that’s why.
Am I going to be content with writing 1,670 words each day from here on out? NO!
Because I want to do more than just barely finish at 50,000 on November 30th! I want to smash it to bits! I want to get 60,000 or 70,000 or 80,000!
Besides all of that, if I keep setting such high goals for myself, it will make it that much easier to succeed!
How many words have you written today?
How many words have you written this month?
