NaNo update: I've made up one day of my 3 day deficit (from working a 3 day conference) so I'm now only 2 days behind. And it is official: I have encountered the Week Two hurdles. I can say that the majority of comments are right. I've hit the mud-pits.
However, most of my mud slogs are due to other stressors here at home. Writing has been somewhat of an escape from them. If I can just keep going, I eventually disappear into the novel. Plus, by having done a rough outline and a plot synopsis, even when I deviate a wee bit, I'm still on track with the story.
Slowly, I type. Key by key. Word by word. I'll get there, by gummies, I'll get there!
I've also decided that my mouse is dying. --- That's the computer's mouse, not any cute little critter. (I love rodents - and bats - and such.)
