I am obviously way behind my goal of 2000 words a day. I blame my job for this. This site launch was not supposed to totally eat like six whole days of my life, and two more sizeable chunks of evening time. I consider my job quite rewarding, even though it is not always fun, and l am usually satisfied, and proud of myself and my team. However, this week I feel like I have been sorely used. I am a hero at work, but there is a cost.
Anyway, I was barely keeping my head above water going into this, and losing six and one-half days out of the first 13 did not help matters. I was about a day behind on the 7th, and now it is the 14th and I am 7 days behind.
I tried to make up for this by getting up early and writing more, but between this morning and now I was only able to cough up 650 or so words. I am still bone-tired and sleeping from 1 to 6 doesn’t help. It also doesn’t help that I was held for an additional two hours after work and we had a guest over for dinner.
I will still give it a sporting chance, but if I don’t make it, I am not going to feel guilty about it. What I am going to do is finish the fucking story, November or not. I value work very highly but I am not willing to give up the rest of my life entirely.
