Day 2 of NaNoWriMo and I’m playing catch-up. I woke up yesterday with what felt like the flu, so my plans for fitting in writing spurts went out the window. I managed to get out 268 words out of desperation. I couldn’t think straight, but I also couldn’t not write anything, so I got out the very beginning at least.

Today, I’ve felt better, but still pretty sick. I’ve been really going at the writing though, in between chasing kids. I ended up with a word count of 3030. Not quite as much as I had hoped, but still decent and better than expected. Hopefully I can catch up tomorrow!

I’m using Scharffen Berger chocolate pieces as writing incentives. I get a couple of piece after every 500 words. Each piece is about the size of two chocolate chips, so it’s a nice taste, but not too much.
