So, after I wrote my blog post last night, I actually went back and kept working on my novel. I would write a few hundred words and update my word count on nanowrimo.org, intending to quit and go to bed, and then I would have another thing that had to be written down immediately so I didn't forget, so I'd go write a few hundred more words. Before I knew it, I had actually met par for the 14th. If you count the time after midnight as just part of yesterday, all said and done I wrote over 3,700 words yesterday.
It was definitely the boost I needed.
I wrote a little more on and off throughout the day, ending at 28,189 words for the day. If you count the additional words written last night as yesterday's words, my word count for today is only around 700 words, but on paper both days are a little over 2,000 words each. I'm okay with it. I know not every day can be 8,000 or even 2,000 words, but I'm hoping to be able to maintain the habit of working on my novel every day, even after November is over.
Tomorrow we don't have any in-person write-ins, but I might try to join the virtual Discord write-in and see if the sprints feature can help me get another good chunk of writing done.
