So Guilty

November 10, 2012 at 5:13 pm 3 comments

I haven’t written a single word for NaNoWriMo since Tuesday. And even that was about two sentences.

Things were going so well! Last Sunday I wrote 1711 words, above even the NaNo daily recommendation for people trying to get the full 50,000 words. (As opposed to the about 37,000 I’m aiming for.) I was feeling good, thinking about doing a bit of editing before I moved on to the next big scene.

And then homework reared its ugly head. I’m still working on the big speech I have to present on Monday. I have homework and studying to do for a Calculus test on Friday. And I haven’t even started my Databases homework that’s due on Monday, much less the Lit research paper due Thursday.

It’s official. NaNoWriMo was not designed for the college student. If it was, we’d all be doing this in July or August.
