I think this picture sums it up.
But seriously folks.
Oh man. I can't believe how insane this is! It's so awesome to be getting all these words out, but it is so exhausting! Sleep has eluded me numerous times.
Once I got to a certain point, I felt like my story needed to be changed. It became painful to keep writing when I wanted to go back and fix the problem. It just didn't feel right, you know? But I can't go back and restart, or delete and rewrite. I'll get behind! So frustrating.
But that's what next month is for!
I keep having to tell myself this. My neck hurts, my brain hurts, my body keeps telling me it wants to sleep... But I still feel accomplished. It's the most words I've ever written. And that feels great. Even though this draft is utter crap. LOL. I can go back through a whole first draft and fix all the broken and dissonant parts later...
A WHOLE FIRST DRAFT.
That sounds awesome.
What do you think so far? Have you hit any slumps or high points? I want to hear about it!
PS: My count is just above 25,000 as of 12:30 last night, so I'm ahead of myself today. I still have time tonight after work to tack on more. :)
