As I said a couple of days ago, I've abandoned my NaNoWriMo attempt and have reined back my efforts to a more reasonable level. Instead of trying for 2000+ words daily, I will aim for a steady 750 words per day, which is the novel_in_90 target.

I caught up on the activities for the advanced creative writing class and produced 250 words for that. In the afternoon, I went out for a walk, despite the weather and this evening I managed a desultory 565 words on the novel.

Now I'm writing more slowly, I will actually have time to plan in a bit more detail, but my head is also full of other stuff, such as how to adapt a short story as a radio play and what to write for the tutorial activity. But it's all good practice and writing continues to be enjoyable, which is what really matters.
