NaNoWriMo: Word Counts

Yes, that shadow that chooses to loom over some of us and tailgate behind the rest. Sadly, just over a week into my writing, I’m very much under the shadow. I should be at around 12,000 words, but I have only got about half of that. Now, I suppose I could sit here and poke my word count in an attempt to make it more appealing or I could get discouraged and chuck the whole thing out the window.

Thing is, I told myself (late as it was) that I was going to do this. I was going to write this month, school or… school, and I am pretty well determined not to back out on myself.  I have done too many times in the past. There are files upon files of stories I have begun work on, but then discarded at some point or another and left to accumulate dust on my hard-drive.

This month, I am determined not to let more dust settle. I have pulled out the feather duster along with my pen, it is cleaning month!
