Success! Yesterday I said I had a plan to get back on track with NaNoWriMo. And I have accomplished that! If my calculations are correct, I wrote just enough words today that I can write the regular amount tomorrow and get all caught up. But, despite me having an A+ in math, I'm not that good at it, so I could be totally off. NOTE: I did the calculations again, and I was so off. It looks like I'm going to have to write 3500 words tomorrow to get caught up. I'm so dumb.
Today I had a really traumatic experience, and this next paragraph has nothing to do with writing, so read it if you want, or don't. The thing is, I have my leaner's permit, and I was driving home with my mother in the passenger seat, and my sister in the backseat. I am driving through "town" (which, there's like 1000 people in my township, so I use the word 'town' loosely), you see. It is dark because of daylight saving time, and because I am in "town", I can't have my brights on. So I'm driving along, when all the sudden a black and white cat runs into the road. It's only a few feet in front of me, and I freeze up and don't know what to do. And then I ran it over. I felt it's little body get ran over, and I started crying right then and there. My mom laughed at me, and told me she once ran over a squirrel on a moped. She's ridiculous. So yeah, I just needed to get all of that out.
Anyway, I wrote all night, from when I got home after running that cat over, until now. I had insecurities about my NaNo today, and am in that "this is the worst thing ever, I might as well quit writing forever" stage that I'm sure I went through last year, but cannot remember. I hope I'm not the only one this happens to.
