NaNo is going pretty well. Except for one teeny, weeny little detail.
I am 10,000 words behind.
Which… is this really a problem?
Yes, I could catch up. It will involve lots of writing (just over 2K a day). Last November, I fell behind on day 10, changed novels on day 13, finally got caught up on about day 27. So, yes, I am capable of catching up.
But the story is going well! Slow but well. Really well, in fact. Yeah, not perfect, but I like it.
So… is it worth trying to catch up and “finish” NaNo?
I really feel like I could win. And if I decide not to shoot for 50K, I will still use NaNo as positive peer pressure (there has got to be a better way to put that, but what else would you call it? You have Thousands of People all writing together, encouraging each other to do the same.).
But is it worth the risk of possibly coming up with a story I don’t love (which happened last year) to try to “finish” NaNo?
And how do I write 2K a day?
