#ROW80 Check-in 19th October – Another Bad Week

I am so up and down this round aren’t I? At first I was doing well, then last week I stopped writing completely, then caught up over the weekend, and now I’ve done nothing again this week. It’s a rollercoaster of fun!

My writing finished on Sunday with the end of a funny bit (I think) in the middle of a scene. I’m now having problems moving on from it. I don’t know what to write. On Tuesday I sat in front of the laptop for half an hour (yeah, playing Angry Birds too) and just couldn’t think of anything. This is a problem (I didn’t even try on Monday cause I was out too late, and was too drunk last night!).

So I need to catch up tonight then. 1,500 words tonight.

This scares me.

What scares me even more is NaNo. 1,667 words a day. I know I’ve completed it a couple of times (both times I’ve done it actually) but right now it seems incredibly daunting. Scarily daunting! I’m actually scared. I’ve heard a rumour that the 3rd year is a fail year – quite a few people who have ‘won’ their 1st and 2nd years ‘lose’ their 3rd. I don’t want to be one of those people!!!

Tonight then I’m going to crack on with it. I’m going to go for 1,500 words. Another NaNo day of 1,667 would be awesome. 2k would be perfect. But we’ll see. Hopefully I’ll get over this hard bit and will fly for the rest of the week, the weekend and the rest of the month!
