4:03pm 11/27: 850,000 words.
My super-desperate goal is to make sure that I have better than 900,000 words before noon on the 29th…I don’t want the 100k in 36 hours again.
But I think I’d rather have a bit more breathing room than that.
I’ve been fking around a lot lately. I’ve been sitting on the computer telling myself “one more game of FreeCell and then you write” and an hour later, I’m still playing FreeCell. Then I switched to Hearts. Same problem. I’m a procrastinator by nature, but the time for that has come and gone. I’ve got 150,000 words to write in the next 80 hours. I think I can do it, but I’m going to have to
a) stop fking around and
b) write and
c) stop taking ’10 minute naps that turn into 6 hour sleeps’. Yeah, I recognize I need to sleep. Everyone does, and if I go completely without sleep between here and midnight on the 30th, the last few thousand words just aren’t going to be recognizable as English. But I need to start setting myself goals and actually meeting them before letting myself take these naps that I know will be longer than 10 minutes
