NaNoWriMo 2022, Day 13: 25,890 words

Well, I did say I needed a couple thousand words, didn't I?  With some good focused writing time at tonight's write-in, I definitely got it!  I ended up with 2,149 words for the day, all written at the write-in.  Although I had intended to write some more when I got home, I didn't end up getting a chance, but that's okay.  With more than 2k under my belt for today, I'm feeling better about my progress.

I was worried about tonight's write-in being noisy and talkative, since Zac said that one of the people from the Saturday write-in was there last week, and it was a little noisy.  But there were a few less people there this week, seven of us total instead of last week's 12, so maybe some of the other talkers weren't there.  The one from Saturday's write-in was the only one I think of as particularly noisy, and without anyone else to talk to, he was relatively quiet tonight.

I was pleased, because I was able to focus pretty well nearly the entire time, with a couple of short breaks for minor chatting and eating a sandwich.  I was able to get well into a scene that I was having a hard time getting started.  I have more to write on that scene tomorrow, but I'm in a good place with it now.

I was going to write a little more tonight, but I ended up planning out my week instead (an activity I think I'm going to start doing every Sunday night), and I'm not sorry.  Besides, the scene is at a good place to be resumed easily tomorrow.

Speaking of tomorrow, there isn't a write-in, so when I was planning my week I made sure to mark off time for writing.  I'm pretty sure if I didn't, I wouldn't get any writing time done.  Hopefully marking off a couple of hours in my calendar will help ensure it gets done, as I still want that daily writing badge for the month!
