Some writing days are just better than others. I woke up pretty exhausted this morning despite sleeping in an hour later than usual. I’ve recently cut my nicotine gum down by a 1/4 and I think that’s taking its toll on me. It’s about 5 PM at the time I’m writing this and I’m ready for bed. I’m going to try to stay up a few more hours before crashing.
I’m trying not to get caught up in the fact that quitting smoking is slowing me down in every other area of my life. It’s a good thing to do, but that little ‘nicotine addict monster’ likes to claim I could write so much more if I just smoked. I don’t want to smoke. At this point it’d likely make me sick. I just don’t want to be tired anymore. Oh, tomorrow is another day. I’m so ready for this weekend!
What I accomplished today:
Today I wrote chapter 11 and 12.
Snags Along the Way:
Mostly just being tired. I think I need to write out another plot soon too, but I’m too tired to do that today.
How today went:
Starting Word Count: 20,074
Total Words Written: 2,150
Ending Word Count: 22,224
I’m going to have to remember slow and steady wins the race. No matter whether I finish this book this month or next – I tried despite being in the process of quitting nicotine.
Goals for Tomorrow:
Tomorrow I just want to meet my word count goals and start my weekend early!
