11/30/02 44,968 words in the next 10 hours and 12 minutes

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

Unless I can write 44,968 words in the next 10 hours and 12 minutes, which I won’t, my NaNoWriMo experience will end in failure. I haven’t entirely lost interest in finishing this novel. I think NaNoWriMo spurred me to actually start writing and to be excited about it. For many reasons, though, the main one […]

11/22/02 kind of a bust, or, little hope

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

Ah, November. How fast you are passing. How non-Novembery it feels here in the Bay Area, with highs ranging from 62 all the way up into the 70s. How little work I’ve done on my so-called novel. I’ll work on it again, or I’ll come up with a better idea. Or I’ll even spew out […]

11/12/02 fear and sleep: equal culprits

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

Well, hello. I have written 5,032 words so far. I should have written 18,333 by the end of the 11th. I am merely 8 days behind the projected pace, after 11 days, but am now making an attempt to catch up. That, plus freelance work, will keep these weblog entries brief. I was pretty burned […]

11/4/02 procrastination has always worked well

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

Again, I have failed to get to bed at any reasonable hour tonight. Unfortunately, I didn’t even quite keep up with the pace—I’m only at 4105 (out of 5000, where I should be after 3 days). I’ll catch up this week or over the weekend. Or over Thanksgiving weekend, perhaps. Procrastination has always worked well […]

11/3/02 sacrificed a couple hours of sleep

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

Well, I sacrificed a couple hours of sleep to get back on pace after two days of writing, if only temporarily. I have no plans to write much else today, Sunday, however. Writing some dialogue on the BART Saturday worked pretty well, in retrospect. I’ll continue to use those moments productively. (Hell, even that’s justification […]

a little behind the pace

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

I guess I’m a little behind the pace. Last night I attempted to get back to a normal sleep schedule. That way I’ll be able to spend the mornings working on freelance, and when I get caught up on that, I’ll work a bit on the novel. To be honest, with all the stuff I […]

11/1/02 slow going so far

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

Slow going so far—in five hours, I wrote 1858 words. I’m definitely going to have to pick up the pace to get it all in this month. Several breaks for e-mail slowed me down, as did far too much re-reading and fixing. On the other hand, I think it shows a reasonable amount of promise. […]
