NaNoWriMo Journal (for archiving)

I'm moving this tab to a blog post for the sake of reworking my tabs and archiving the information within so I don't lose it. ;) ~Jessica


DAY ONE: November 1
Goal: 1667
Achieved: 1826
Comments: I got started on it at midnight, spent 1 1/2 hours writing--almost half done. I ended up dreaming about updating my NaNo writing count several times and tossing and turning over it. I think I'll be better tonight, lol. So happy to have gotten that much accomplished in one day!

DAY TWO: November 2
Goal: 3334
Achieved: 3438
Comments: I was up until 2 AM last night, which made me tired today for work. I can't keep doing that. So, I'll be cutting myself off at midnight every night no matter what.

DAY THREE: November 3
Goal: 5001
Achieved: 6072
Comments: Phew! I can't believe I got so much done considering how tired I feel. Hopefully I can get another 2,000 in tomorrow so that I won't have to be under too much pressure for my busy weekend.

DAY FOUR: November 4
Goal: 6668
Achieved: 8193
Comments: I am SOOO tired right now. I'm actually going to go to bed early. I am so stoked that I got that many words out! My brain is really fried today... I need a break. But I don't want to get too far behind either.

DAY FIVE: November 5
Goal: 8335
Achieved: 9180
Comments: Only gained a little less than 1,000, but that's because I spent the day with a friend. Plus I slept in. And it felt GOOD.

DAY EIGHT: November 8
