Done Done Done!
It was a crazy night last night. I had a work-related presentation. It was at the Osteria Mozzo in Hollywood on Melrose. Great company, amazing wines, nailed the presentation, and the gelato was sinful. But the whole time I kept on thinking of one thing... "Thank God, I don't have to pay for this indulgence."
Okay, there was another thing that I was thinking of. The manuscript, NaNoWriMo, and you, my support and cheering team.
I got home at just past 11:00 PM. But I was committed. So I prepared a double espresso, two heaping spoons of Nutella and I hunkered down.
It took me just under three hours. By the time I was done, my knee was shaking and I was certain that I would throw up before I made it to bed.
More importantly, by the time I was done, I was really done.
I revised the entire manuscript and hit 59,261 words. Just shy of my 60,000 word goal, but like I've said before, I won't add scenes and dialogue just to hit a number.
My next post will be my thoughts on these past 30 days (29 but who's counting).
Thank you for sticking with me. And thank you for being a mechanism for guilt. We're all motivated by different things. Committing to a daily post forced me to always make progress.
Fight the good fight!
