Yesterday, I got back on the horse, as the saying goes. I didn’t do any writing in Obscure Origin until Kate Cavanaugh’s Patreon-exclusive write-in just like I predicted. Part of that was due to the amount of homework I had to do, but that was greatly impacted by my mental health taking an unexpected hit, which slowed down my productivity in both school and novel writing.
I only wrote 774 words, but I’m very happy with those words because I got to rewrite a scene that I’ve been wanting to for the past few days.
If you’ve been following my blog posts this month, you know that I already “won” Camp NaNo, a few days ago. And now that I didn’t have a hard goal to hit anymore, my novel writing productivity took a dip (also due to my undergraduate studies hurtling very quickly to its end on May 19).
But if you read my post yesterday, you’ll know that the day before (April 27) dealt a bit of a blow to my mental health. And even though it didn’t completely derail me that day, it totally laid me out the next (yesterday: April 29). I stayed up incredibly late which then made me wake up incredibly late and nap a lot. So, I had to spend the rest of the day doing homework or just being extra kind to myself.
Because you can’t win every day. As such, my word count progress is the exact same as the day before:
Luckily, there is one last Camp NaNo April 2020 write-in (that I know of) tomorrow night. I’m hoping it will get me one final push before school completely overtakes my life for the following 2.5 weeks.
