I’ve hit pause on my NaNoWriMo progress for a few days in order to fulfill a few other major obligations, particularly, writing and practicing a lengthy talk I’m giving Tuesday.
Also, I’ve been feeling ill yesterday and today, though I’m hoping that will pass. I’m expecting to restart Tuesday evening, but that means that I’m going to be ~5k words behind by then.
The plan is to catch up later and still hit 50k by Dec 1, of course! I’ve been thinking about the plot, and spent some time reading up on lenses and the Van Allen belts (I prefer my fantasy to be scientifically accurate where possible) so I should have plenty to write about. Besides, the whole point of this exercise is to learn how to find time to write in the middle of all the other crap that goes on in my life. “Busy” isn’t exactly an uncommon thing when one has two jobs and is doing kitchen renovations.

Hope you feel better soon!
Actually, aside from a slight headache I’m already feeling better. Just in time to spend a late night at work putting together a presentation for tomorrow’s workshop. …Yay…
A couple days off can give you a new outlook on things. Hope you’re feeling better, and I expect to see your word count heading north soon. 😉
Thanks! Illness seems to have abated, one presentation down, one to go. Then: nothing to do but write and work on the kitchen!
And you know, there really is nothing better for one’s desire to write than not being “allowed” to, is there? I’ve had all sorts of good ideas. All sorts of bad ideas too, but those are even better 🙂
