NaNoWriMo Captain’s Log: Day 10

Captain’s Log, November 10th, 2009.

I have the day off from work tomorrow. I’ll be writing.

You were expecting more of a post? I’m a few thousand words behind where I’m supposed to be, but I’m very happy with what I have so far.

So tomorrow isn’t playing catch up, but it is playing. NaNoWriMo to me is in the writing, not the word count.

  1. The word count means more to me than I feel that it reasonably should. At least when I’m not on par anyway. When I’m where I need to be or further, I find that the word count means less. But when I neglect the text for two days and suddenly I’m missing five thousand words (I’m a Mathematician) then I feel like I’m being strangled by the perceived expectation of the NaNoWriMo institution.

    (I’m writing this on the twelfth, does that mean you’re playing with the text now, later or already?)

  2. The word count to me is a guideline more than anything, but honestly you’re very right about the looming nature of it when you’re behind, and especially about the percieved expectation of NaNoWriMo.

    And I was just getting home from shopping, having played with the text much earlier in the day.
