NaNoMongering 6: " " - The Existential Title

NaNoWriMo, NaNoWriMo
I used to have a life you know.
Now I'm in wrimo hell you see,
With a laptop on my knee.

I am really sleepy, so this will be a short entry.

I wrote slightly more than 2000 words today, bringing my grand total for this month to 7400 words. This means that I am still behind, but I should be caught up at least to the NaNo goal of 10,000 tomorrow (Day 6), if I write 2600 words. Then I can get back to my original goal of finishing 60,000 words in a month. Yes, the NaNo goal is only 50,000, but I really need to finish this story by the end of the year. In any case, I found that after getting used to writing 1667 words per day, doing 2000 is really not that much harder. Plus, my OCD self likes the round number better.

Let's just hope my hands cooperate. I make no progress with dictation.


  1. Yeah, I've pretty much reached that point too -- where NaNoWriMo > life.

    Have you ever tried using the Dvorak keyboard layout? I've never really had actual problems with my wrists, but I find typing much faster and easier in Dvorak.
    Just something I thought of.

    Good luck! :-)

  2. Yes. I actually do use it already. :-) I absolutely love it, now that I have gotten over the learning curve. It is definitely infinitely more comfortable. It's just that when my hands act up, I have to take a break from typing and using the mouse altogether.
