NaNo ’12 Day 20

And there went a good chunk of my buffer. With a week and a half to go.

I can’t blame folks or other things on this one, though, much as I want to. 😉
No, this one was all me. First, I’d reached this one scene that, try as I might, I could not write. I knew what I wanted to happen — and eventually resorted to another stream of consciousness “blah, blah, this happens here” set of notes — but I could not write the scene itself.
Then, instead of doing the sensible thing by simply skipping to the next scene… I spent my time on the Steam communities, looking at some of the mods I’d once downloaded for Skyrim, and drooling over the official DLC like Hearthfire — which I can’t buy until I can get this limit sorted out with PayPal! *cue foaming at the mouth* Speaking of which, I’ll likely be reblogging my “Elder Scrolls wishlist” at some point with a few changes.

Anyway, distractions besides the point, I honestly was having trouble working through the one scene.
So aside from the stream of consciousness, I finally decided to skip to the next scene and hope for better luck for Day 21.

Day’s goal: as always, 1,667 words.
Daily written: 695
Total goal: 33333
Total written: 34804
Report Card: At this rate, you will finish on Nov 29.

And a 1519 daily average would let me finish on time.

Now let’s see if I can get that buffer back!
