NaNoWriMo Day Twenty-Five

My total word count is 41,836. Today I wrote 1060 words. I was able to check off another item from my plot list and get started on two more that happen concurrently.

I find myself wanting to write and not wanting to write at the same time. For instance, I have some rewards I've earned but not rewarded myself with yet. Part of me wants to take time off to enjoy those rewards but I only have a few days left to make my word count goal of 50,000. This same part of me doesn't want to make the 50,000. It's as if by not making the word count goal it's going to prolong the month or the writing or something else that I can't quite place my finger on. That's just silly. The other part of me wants to burn right through the last several thousand words so I can say the novel is done, relax for a few days, and start another project at a somewhat more leisurely pace.

I think I will still try to get some writing done each day after November 30th but I'll set a more reasonable daily word count goal. I made an offhand comment to my husband the other day about how I wished my LJ entries could count towards my NaNoWriMo daily word count. hehe

Tonight I finally came up with a title for the novel. More Than Blue. I was writing something my main character was thinking about his wardrobe and it fit.
