NaNoWriMo mofo hobo

Well, it's reading week, and I've nothing much to report except that we're now four days into NaNoWriMo and it hasn't killed me yet.  I've been trying to fit the 1667 words-a-day around an essay that's due in a couple of weeks, so it's been a bit hectic, and the NaNoWriMo words are definitely not the finest bunch of syllables I've ever produced.  Nevertheless, they are words, and I'm pleased I haven't fallen behind yet.  Mostly I've been belting out out the word-count in very short sessions without any editing as I go, and I don't want to imagine the horrors that await me when I eventually reread.  Today I had the day off, so I devoted the afternoon to my daily chunk of prose. I've got another workshop submission due in about ten days and I thought I could kill two birds with one stone if I concentrated. I ended up with 1700 fairly usable words, and if I can do that again over the weekend, that'll be my workshop sorted, and at least 3000 of the 50000 won't be garbled nonsense.  I'm back to Birmingham tomorrow and Friday for work, so I suppose I'll be NaNo'ing on the train while half-asleep.  Well, serves me right for signing up to this in the first place.  Now for some ice-cream before bed!

I started off well with NaNo, but have slipped back a bit last night and tonight. Will catch up closer to the weekend, but need to think what to write. Beginning and ending are fine, middle is rather confused!
