NaNoWriMo 2021: Day Eight

Eighty-five minutes total writing time. Two hourglasses (30 min each) focused time. Added 967 words.

Stayed in tonight instead of joining the crew. Definitely feeling the resistance tonight! Fucked around for forty-five minutes before making myself start. Probably (definitely) because I wasn’t sure what to write next…

Started to write the middle section of my current scene, but realized it wasn’t important to the emotional plot and cut it. Instead, I pulled forward (part of) a conversation I’d planned for another chapter. I didn’t quite finish it up, so we’ll see how much more I work into it tomorrow. The scene’s at a good word count, so I probably want to wrap it up soon.

Just two chapters left after this one! I can’t believe I’m finally so close to the end. NaNo 2017 to NaNo 2021…
