The Words: 125 written today.
Despite my insistence on writing every day, even if it was only 18 words, to get the badge at the end of the month, yesterday, I had a migraine that went away at suppertime. After supper, I tried to unwind from the stressful day with a video game, and next thing I knew, it was 1 am.
I’ve realized that I might have burnt out this month, and as I mentioned 2 days ago, I also felt like I was dragging out the end of the story. So I put a nice, neat cap on the end of the story with 125 words, and called it a win!
(Yes, I hit 50k words a while ago, but I decided not to validate my win until I put the finishing words into the story, because I could tell my motivation was dropping off.)
The Story: It may have been a little too easy, but Nathan was able to ease his wife’s mind, and Rogan’s brother put the final words into the story, basically saying that things were definitely going to be okay, since his brother was back.
I will likely not write more in the next 2 days, since the story is done anyway. If I do, it will be a little more brainstorming about things that should have been in this story but weren’t. But if that doesn’t happen, this will be my last word count post for the month. I will probably write a final one at the end of the month, looking back at November, as I have in the past.
Total word count: 69,878
