I’m now at 40,120 words written for NaNoWriMo 2021. Which means I’m right on target for my goal as of yesterday. I am hopeful that I can catch up to today’s goal later in the day. Once I’ve slept a little bit. I’d really like to be one daily word goal ahead as I tend to write into the night and need this safety blanket to finish in November instead of the early hours of 1 December – and thus fail the challenge by a hair’s breadth.

But, if everything goes according to plan, I’ll be using most of the weekend to write – and I might be streaming a lot of this on Twitch as well. The goal is to finish the 50,000 words right there and then and not even run the risk of failing during the last two days. Not sure I can manage that, but I will definitely try my best – real life commitments permitting.
