NaNoWriMo – day 4
Engaged in deep soul-searching. Attended self-pity-party for one. Trudged slowly through the city, looking determinedly miserable. Wrote around 500 words. Felt immensely proud and desperate at the same time.
What I’m learning from this:
- Never embark on three crazy adventures at the same time. Try to stagger them at least a little.
- Keep on writing no matter what. Those 500 words right before falling asleep helped. Really.
- Trust your friends to make you feel better when you’re down – don’t eat it all in and be all miserable and lonely.
About Ally: she’s in the bookshop and trying to figure out what’s up with the shop. She’s in for another adventure in the next couple hundred words and will then have a job offered to her, followed by a serious discussion. She’ll go home with very mixed feelings and not sure how to tell her parents.
Off to write that now. And it’ll hopefully sound a lot better and much more funny when it’s done.
