2020 is life on hard mode

On what should have been my second day of work, I woke up with a slight fever. Now, I was pretty sure it was nothing serious, but I didn’t want to lie to my manager so I told her when I got in. I ended up going home and scheduling a COVID-19 test for later in the day, and yesterday afternoon it came back negative, so I finally had my second day of work today.

Despite having two days off, I didn’t get ahead of my NaNoWriMo goals because I was still not feeling great. Still, I’m not super behind so I’d say I’m still doing okay.

Things are getting weird. I started writing from the middle of the story instead of the end. Each section/chapter has time stamps so I’m considering not going in order at all and just sorting them in editing. But we’ll see.

November 3rd word count: 3835
November 4th word count: 6426
November 5th word count: 8381

I haven’t done NaNoWriMo since college, I don’t think. And it was high school when I last finished and edited a NaNoWriMo novel. I forgot how much work this is. I was like “yeah, I did this before, no problem.” No, there is a problem. This is a lot to write. And I don’t really have a plan, other than send a bunch of people to hell. YOLO.

If you’re doing NaNoWriMo, are you on target or will you need this weekend to catch up?
