Still plugging along. I had a major setback last week. I wasn't able to write for like 4 days. And getting behind was one of my biggest fears for this challege. You can't catch up on what you missed and then take a breather. You have to keep going!
I told my sister, "I've got to write more than 5,000 words to catch up...aahhh."
She said something like this, "Then go do it. Don't quit."
Today I'm at over 25,000 words. I should be 26,000 something. So not too bad.
I thought the pressure of catching up would hinder my creativity. The opposite happened. I don't know if that will always be the case, but it worked this time.
Thanks for the pep talk Natalie! I might have to name a character after you ;)
