So since today is 11-11-11, there was a challenge posted on the NaNoWriMo forums. It was literally to write 11,111 words to commemorate the binary date.
I’m nowhere near the goal. And I very likely won’t make it before midnight.
On the plus side, I am nearly finished my first NaNoWriMo book for this year. Since it’s so early, I am planning to write at least one other, maybe two, depending on how fast I can write.
I have been in competition with another Wrimo, another participant of NaNoWriMo. I am currently behind. But she is a robot, I’m sure of it. I’m having a very difficult time catching up to her, even though I’m only 21,000 words behind. I say only because it makes me feel better about my deficiencies.
I know that it is not about competing with another person, that the goal of NaNoWriMo is to force you to take those words and write them, but I feel like I need to validate myself by comparing myself to this other person. Besides, I have a lot of free time on my hands right now. What else am I gonna do? Ha ha!
So I probably won’t beat the 11-11-11 challenge, which is a shame because I am letting myself down. However, I did actually finish that first book, so that’s something to be proud of right?
