Nano at the Midpoint

Heidy-ho, all!

So yesterday was the halfway point of this year’s Nano, and uh… well…

The kid ain’t lookin so good.

I started off strong, clocking 6,859 words the first weekend. Motivated, excited, and well-paced to follow the Reverse Nano word count guide and have but one word to write on November 30th.

Over the next week, I added another 13k to that total, though in less spectacular fashion.

Then life caught up with me.

My four-year-old caught a random flu-like virus complete with fever, listlessness, congestion… really fun stuff. Then in her innocent generosity, she shared her bounty with me, and I was felled four days.
