NaNoWriMo Day 8

How I am Doing: The first week is done. I'm still writing!

Word Count: 7165 (as of 830 pm November 7)

How Are Workouts Going: Very well. Haven't sacrificed one for the other.

I am just happy I am 'still writing'. I caught a stomach bug late Wednesday, and did not write at all Thursday or Friday. I felt I was getting into a hole, but Saturday I felt better and just thought I should write. I could have written more over the weekend, but the weather was beautiful, and I took advantage of that. I spent my lunch time today outlining some future chapters of my novel, so I have a better idea of what I am going to sit down and type.

Late Friday, as I felt bad physically, I felt bored with my novel idea-already.  But that notion did go away as I recovered.
It's been interesting, today, waking up and sitting down to writing for one solid half hour.  That's why I felt it was important to get more  outlining done, so I can wake up and just write. 

I also decided it was not that important for my protagonist to be a "nice" person, so we'll see what will happen next.

This has been a good excercise so far.  Writing 50000k is like finishing a 100 mile race. You either do it or you don't.
