nanowrimo 2016 | week four | freaking out

tuesday november 22nd
I got some coffee with my sister after a long day of work that went on even longer than it should have. I was so tired that all I wanted to do was take a shower and sleep until November was over, but I had to get to writing.

wednesday november 23rd
I had to work today, but it was only a half day and even then I couldn't write that much more than yesterday when I actually had like the craziest work day ever.

thursday november 24th
Happy Thanksgiving! And now onto the sad part...
I think the stress of falling behind has finally hit me, and I'm sorting of freaking out. I thought I would be able to catch up, but I just keep hitting these slumps. It's weird because there are days where I feel like writing 2,000 words is so easy and then there are other days where I'm struggling to get like 100 words out. Also saw Fantastic Beasts today.

friday november 25th
I really had nothing planned for today, but somehow ended up with almost no time to do anything. I thought I wasn't going to do the whole Black Friday mall shopping thing and then I found myself at the mall for like three or four hours. Worst. Idea. Ever.
Also Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life came out today and that just destroyed my writing time. Do I regret it? Not right now.

saturday november 26th
Okay, so a little recap of the past few days. I was exhausted. Big time. Physically and mentally. Which you can probably tell by the amount of words I got done yesterday. It was painful. This month has been one of the craziest, most exhausting (can't think of another word) ones of my life. I can't wait for December. I could really use some holiday cheer right about now.
Now onto what happened today:
Today I was actually a lot busier than I have been, but somehow managed to get out words. I think that was partially due to the fact that I went to a cafe with my sister and we hung out there for about an hour. That kind of got the story flowing, and made it easier to just keep writing.

sunday november 27th
I stayed up past midnight on Saturday and kept going with the "flow" I was feeling and wrote another 1,000 words by 1:00 am.

monday november 28th
At this point I'm just pushing myself to write. There's moments where I remember why I love my story, and that helps motivate me to keep on writing. But then I look at how much time I have left, and I start freaking out. Again.
