NaNoWriMo, Day 9

The past few days I fell behind, and this morning I calculated that I needed to write 2,946 words to catch up to the goal.

I was discouraged, but promised myself that after every block of 500 words, I could eat an Oreo.

Guess what? I hit the goal. My word count is now 15,012, well into the awkward teens. Actually, halfway through the teens.

This bodes well. I'm completely rejuvenated and back on track! :)

Although I'm also enormously stressed. I have two major essays due soon, one next Thursday and one the Monday after that. And I haven't started either one. I usually thrive when I have to work last-minute, but I think my sanity is starting to erode.

I wish I wasn't so good at procrastinating!


  1. Procrastination FTW. Hahaha! Good luck with your awkward teens! :)

  2. I'm happy my semester is almost over. Finals are next month and I'm excited for them as weird as that sounds. Good luck with Nano. ;)

  3. Hi Becca,

    I just wanted to say that I saw your comment on Steph Su's cover post, and thank you SO MUCH for identifying the castle on the Nightspell cover! It was half a year before I knew which castle was on the Mistwood cover (Segovia Castle in Spain, also located by a blogger) and it was driving me crazy. :)

  4. No problem, Leah! I'm glad my random tidbit of knowledge came in useful! :P

  5. Haha, don't be freaked out about 2000 words...I'm 7000 behind. @_@
