Yeah...I'm tired...

Day 7. Didn't make my word count goal for today. That means 800 more I'll have to write tomorrow. NaNo is so relentless. I remember this sinking feeling from previous years. Fall behind, fall more behind, have to go to more and more extreme efforts to catch up. I guess that's the beauty of it. Gotta get the words done. Whining won't help. Write the scene whether you're in the mood or not. Just get through it, then do the next, and the next. It's a bit like MUSHing. You have to do the next pose. Everyone's waiting. Never mind if you're not feeling inspired. Don't break the flow because you can't think of the perfect word.

Gotta work on my writing speed. These 1200 words took me over two hours to write. I did one scene. Had another planned. Guess that's first up tomorrow. Is that Loki that Baphomet is talking to? But it's not Loki that the Prince of Rats is conspiring with.
