Thank God for weekends. Today, I came home just an hour earlier than usual but it made such a difference! I’ve written 3, 5K on my NaNo today (the novel has now reached over 70K and there aren’t that many scenes left, so it’s very exciting), which feels like a great daily word count considering I’ve been busy at work all day. It’s hard not to compare yourself to others and losing all hope when people have written 35K already… Today, I also happened to read about a girl who’s written 50K and won NaNo in just 24 HOURS. How is that even possible?! And she did this for several years, as well…

Tomorrow I will go visit a good friend and hopefully I’ll return on Sunday with a whole bunch of new writing ideas (because that’s what usually happens)! I need to do some short stories after I’m done with the novel, but I don’t know what they’ll be about yet. I’m also a bit nervous about the last part of the novel, an epilogue, because I don’t have a clue about how many pages it will be or what it will contain, I just know that there are a lot of things I need to tie together. Oh, well. Tomorrow it’s time for a scene that I’ve been longing for for months now, and it’s going to be so much fun to finally get to write it!
