Day Sixteen: On Track, If Barely November 16, 2010

An eventful past few days.  Thursday did indeed prove fruitful, not only in advancing word count, but in tackling something I had never attempted writing before: a sex scene.  It may not remain in the final version of the book, but it was an interesting exercise.  Friday was slightly less successful, falling just 100-something words short of the daily goal due to packing and traveling out of town to visit family over the weekend.  I did not touch my netbook once, an attitude that stuck with me through to yesterday, thus depleting my surplus word count and bringing me to precisely where I should be by this point in the month.

I’m not disappointed, even though I only wrote 100 words today.  As Chris Baty said in the latest pep talk e-mail, pressure is the sustaining force of NaNoWriMo, and it simply isn’t as captivating when hitting 50,000 words no longer presents a challenge.

Tomorrow, however, I need to pick up the pace.
