“You can always edit a bad page. You can’t edit a blank page.”

We’re back on track, people! Or…we’re trying to find the track LOL. I didn’t write anything in March. I’m not kidding. I think my word count for the entire month was around 420 words, which might be my worse month ever. On the other hand, I went through thirteen stories that will be republished soon. So I didn’t sit idle.
But now I’m writing. April 1st was the start of Camp NaNo, and I decided that come hell or high water, on April 1st I would be writing. And I was. I’ve written 13k in six days, but now I’m gonna work the dreaded day job – is it hell or high water? – so there won’t be many more words this week, I’m afraid.
My goal for NaNo is 15k, but I think I’m gonna change it. 20k should be doable. We’re only on the sixth today and while I’ll be working a lot the coming two and a half weeks, I should manage to get 7k down, don’t you think? I mean there is always the weekends.
I’m keeping track of my words, and I’ve written 71.306 words so far during 2021 which is 28.52% of my yearly goal. I feel like I should be further along, but given the circumstances, I guess it’s okay.
We’ll see how it goes. I need to start planning for holidays stories if I’m gonna write any. My publisher sent out a list of deadlines for the coming holidays, so I need to have a bit of a think on that. So many stories to write and so little time…
