NaNoWriMo 2012: The Sinking Ship

You know that old adage about a picture being worth a thousand words? Yeah, right about now, I wish that were true. I could use those words! The proof is the picture below. It's a screen cap of my NaNoWriMo stats to date. Ignore the "genre," it was the best I could do. So stats, impressive right?!


Yeah, don't answer that! I'm sure you're capable of reading a graph, but I'm going to point it out anyway, ready? Here goes: I am hopelessly behind. I will never catch up. I have no idea how this happened, since I don't have work or school. I literally have nothing else to do, except spend time with my husband (and right now he's only off one day a week, if he's lucky). Know what I'm doing instead? Hint, it's not cleaning my overwhelmingly dirty house. Mhmm, I'm playing WoW, capturing virtual animals for my collection.

So, I started thinking about whether I can catch up, or if I even want to, and I just don't know. I think the fact that I'm not really motivated to do it is getting in the way. Maybe I'll look at my document later and give it some serious thought, maybe I'll even write a word or two. What I won't be able to write is the 10,000 words, or whatever it is to catch up. Might make some progress thought. We'll see. Right about now I'm thinking my time would be better spent cleaning my house. Trust me on this one, if you saw it, you'd understand.

Yeah, think I might just go do that... right now.
