NaNoWriMo part 2

Perhaps I should title it 2.0, but that seems a bit…meh. I think I have done a decent job so far with writing. This piece is the longest linear bit I have written in a long time. Right now I am sitting on 15,886 words according to the word counter on NaNoWriMo’s site. I am taking off 6 because of chapter titles, so I am at 15,880. I have the next two days off and hope to reach 25k at least. Alas, I have not found a suitable work-write relationship yet. I keep hitting the snooze button too many times in the morning to get up early enough to write, and by the time I get home from my 10/+ hour shift I am far too drained to come up with anything worth while.

There is a write in at a local community college tomorrow, but I am not sure how it will please the people there if I leave two hours before the time ends to pick up my fiance from work. I will try to get up enough courage to go meet strangers. I usually do not write well in a public place unless it is a coffee shop.

I see that there are plenty of people participating in this thing that are going forward in leaps and bounds, while some are like I have been for the past few years – barely getting along. The struggle is an odd one. Imagination and drive are two steeds hard to control and know. Such are the challenges of writers. Many have overcome them. One day, I swear, I will be one of those champions.
