NaNoWriMo 2021 Day 11

By the time Day 11 arrived, I was more than a thousand words over where I should be if I’d done 1,667 words every day, and that was before I even did Day 11.

Before then, though, there was gig list admin to do. Because the poet came back from his business trip a day early, he was able to do all of the gig-collection and posted it to the website, and he managed to share the list to everywhere too.

All I had to do then was share it to my own page, close commenting on Monday’s post asking for this week’s gigs, remove that post from announcements, schedule next Monday’s post asking for gigs, and make this week’s gig list today’s announcement.

I updated the diary, bringing it right up to date. I’ve neglected the diary a bit in recent weeks, while I’ve been trying to get into a rhythm for work. I kept scheduling stuff in, and then forever moving it along (I always do the diary in pencil but tick things off in ink).

So after a few weeks of, hopefully, finding that rhythm, I brought the diary up to date and completed it for the rest of the week.

Then… I started work on NaNoWriMo, and I wrote 1,691 (20,888)  words, in two parts, taking a break in the middle to do some client work.

20,888/50,000 words. 42% done!

This isn’t as many words as I would’ve liked it to be, but it’s still going in the right direction. I ground to a bit of a halt, but I think I’ve found my mojo again. By the end of today, I’d like to be more than 50% in.

The client work I did first was the revisions for Part 3 of Book 7 for Ghostwriting Client #1. At the same time I did a readthrough before starting the next instalment. (Part 4.)

I finished work before teatime, skipped fat club, and we went to get a Chinese for tea.

I still have some catching up to do today, but I’m hoping to take the next 4 days off with the poet. I have a deadline date on Sunday, only for one job, though. If I can make a good dent in that today, I’ll be on a roll.

On Monday, I have another publication announcement coming up, and on one of the days we hope to go and do L is for… again for our alphabet adventures.

We were going to do it in two halves and finish it on our second visit, but the change in leaf colour will be too obvious now, so we’re going to do it again from the top.

Keep your fingers crossed I get some time off, and have a great weekend!
