#NaNoWriMo, Day 5

There is good news and bad news on today’s writing. I had to go out to Baltimore to work a booth at a flea market for a friend of mine. I had thought that I would just be there as a relief person and that I’d have time to write during the show. Somehow it didn’t work out that way. The space we had for the booth was a lot smaller than we expected, and I ended up running a lot more errands.

I did get some writing in. But I only racked up 200 some words for the day. Not the 2000 words that has been my daily target. That is the bad news. The good news is that my total word count so far is 10,518, which means that I have maintained an average word per day rate of 2103, which is better than my daily target. I didn’t even need to write at all!

Of course, tomorrow, I am going to see if I can rack up 4 to 5 thousand words to “catch up” and make up for today’s deficit. I have a trip and possible surgery later in the month, and I’d like to get ahead as much as possible while I can. For now, I should head to bed. After all, I have to get up and write later today.
