NaNoWriMo 2021 Day 4

I had a late start for Day 4 of NaNo. A VERY late start. And I also had a lot of work to do. However, I still wanted to do my NaNo bit for the day and while it wasn’t the first job, I did manage it in the end.

I wrote 2,728 words on Day 4.

10,523/50,000 words. 21% done!

Before then, though, I had gig list work to do. The poet had already updated the gig list and shared it on Facebook, but there were things that I still had to do too:

  • also share the gig list on Facebook ✔️
  • close this week’s gig request post to further comments ✔️
  • remove this week’s gig request post from ‘announcements’ ✔️
  • add this week’s gig list to ‘announcements’ ✔️
  • schedule next week’s gig request post asking for next week’s gigs ✔️

The gig list is a lot more work than some would believe. But for as long we still enjoy doing it, we’ll carry on doing it.

Then I went onto Medium and reinstated my membership. I also drafted three stories on there and submitted one of them (a bit of a rant) to one of the publications I sometimes have work in. The other stories will stay in my drafts folder until I finish them and decide where to send them.

Once I’d done that, I finally got around to my NaNo.

Scrivener came back with a fix for their latest update. I wasn’t the only person who mentioned it and it seems they were aware of the problems before I jumped in too. But that’s good news.

By 3pm, Illumination had published the story I sent them on Medium.

The mobile hairdresser turned up to do both our hairs at 4pm, I went to fat club at 7pm, and we had a takeaway when we got home. It’s the only day of the week we have a takeaway now, and it’s usually after my weekly weigh-in.

I was supposed to be taking today off with the poet (and yesterday!), but I still have work to do. I’ll rattle through it as best I can so we still have the weekend.

Y’all have a good one!
