Last week, I didn't work on my novel at all. Tonight, I started again and managed to take the total up to 9,674 words. I've decided to push the deadline for completion back to the end of April. I'm confident I can get the first draft completed by then. People manage to bang out 50,000 words for NaNoWriMo and I'm almost a fifth of the way there, plus I have some long weekends coming up. I can do it!
