Just tired. Not much sleep last night.
I knocked out some words yesterday. 2898 for NaNoWriMo and 2215 for a story I was trying to get submitted by yesterday’s deadline. I finished the story, polished it up and got it sent off before midnight. Not bad. I wish every day could be like that. True word bliss.
I haven’t written that many words in one day in at least a year. I was thinking about the why of it. After writing nearly 3000 words on the novel, I was motivated to write a 2200 word short story and submit it—something else I haven’t done in awhile. Maybe NaNoWriMo inspires me to write regardless of whether I’m writing the book or something else. In any case, I love it. I love the feeling of putting the words down, watching a scene or story come together. There’s really nothing like it.
