NaNoWriMo Update–Week Four

Feh.  I have been wickedly sick for the past week and a half, so I haven’t made my personal daily goal this week.  I am not very happy about it, but I am trying to cut myself some slack.   Admittedly, I’m not very good at it, but eh.  So, I have readjusted my goal for the last two days of this year’s NaNoWriMo.  I want to make it to 200,000 words.  Currently, I have 191,009.  In other words, I have to write 9 K in two days.  Is it doable?  If I were healthy, I would say no sweat.  However, I am not as sanguine because I feel like crap right now.  Still, I will soldier on and try to meet my new goal.

Currently, I have one complete novel and a sizable start on the follow-up novel.  In addition, I have started a strange stream-of-conscious non-fiction/fiction piece.  We’ll see where that one goes as well.  The first two are mysteries.  The finished one is messy, raw, and way-the-fuck-too long, but I’m reasonably happy with the overall shape of it.  The second looks as if it’ll be nearly as messy, raw, and long.  Oh well.  I don’t have to worry about that right now.

In other news, I will be going to the doc tomorrow morning.  I really hope she can sort me out and give me new lungs while she’s at it.

  1. Mine was bacterial. Regular old staph caused by an allergic reaction I scratched and then got an infection. I may have to take another course of antibiotics, but she said I could go have fun at the ocean first. 😀
    She also gave me a topical steroid solution to use to aid in the healing. I said, “But I’m allergic to steroids!” She said, “You’ll be fine with a topical and if you feel like shooting people from a clock tower, call me first.”
    So I have to wait till at least the 15th to know if I am done being treated so you still have time to beat me to healthy!

  2. whabs, I’m glad you have your weekend first. Your doctor sounds like a hoot. I feel like shit, but yeah, I think I just may beat you to healthy. New entry!
