It wasn’t the smoothest of starts on this first day of November and the start of National Novel Writing Month 2021. That seems to be endemic of the entire pandemic, why change now?
Anne’s day started with both her boys down sick with sore throats. In this day and age, that means a trip to the doctor to rule out anything serious, which took up a serious chunk of her writing time. She still managed to write 600 words on Enoch this evening and maybe she can make up the extra thousand words over the next few days. She’s going to have to build up momentum in order to make that happen. Fingers crossed.
Nancy also managed to crank out 625 words on her horror novel today. Considering how long that project has been languishing, instead of sitting down and writing, she spent her morning re-reading what she had already written quite a while ago. Now that she’s refreshed her memory, she too is hoping to build up some writing momentum over the next few days.
It wasn’t a triumph but it wasn’t a total wash either. We got some work done and at this point, we’ll call that a win. We’ll keep you posted. Thanks for sticking with us.
Anne, Nancy, and Eric
