It seems rather petty to be trying to set goals this week, given we were woken just after midnight by a 7.5 earthquake. Wellington, where I live, seems to have gotten off lightly and despite having to evacuate because of tsunami warnings last night, we are back home. I've even cleaned up all the damage from the quake.
As you can see, it was nothing serious. Only two of the cases broke too! Amazing really.
Our friends in the South Island haven't been so lucky. So I'm thinking of them today. And working from home.
I swear, this November seems to be conspiring against me finishing NaNo. Between the US election, way too much work, and this earthquake, I'm wondering what else fate is going to throw my way to keep me from hitting my 50K goal.
But I'm not giving in. I'm writing garbage, but I'm going to finish this 50K. It won't be a finished book, but I figure I can finish it in December, albeit at a slightly more leisurely pace. Or maybe not… I may have enough momentum going at the end of the month to keep working at my 2K per day pace. We shall see…
So my goal this week is to say screw the world and its attempts to derail my writing plans. I'm going to hit that 50K despite all this garbage, so by the end of the week, I'm going to have soared past the 30K mark, and be well on my way to 40K.
What are your goals this week?
