Still pantsing for the most part. I dont get an idea of where I’m going for each sitting until the day of or, at best, the day before. But even then every single sitting has resulted in some sort of drastic impromptu left turn. 12th day but only just broke 10K words so I’m <50% the current expected word count (at 1667 words per day). Even so, I'm still kinda proud of the progress. Gonna still aim for the 50K since each sitting is getting me a larger amount of words, generally speaking. I'll definitely be disappointed if I dont make 30K by Dec 1 anyway.

I've been playing the hell through Bon Iver's albums back to back to back to get into the zone (fantastic chill music to write to by the way). Which it takes me hours to get into, whilst I sit at the computer and stall with everything under the sun. I actually dont get anything done usually until like 3am-7am. I think I managed a non-insomniac session once (9pm-10pm?) and the first day was just after midnight and those are my earliest sessions. To my recollection I think I've only missed one day of writing.

I wonder if any of these bad writing habits will change as the month goes on. Might pop into town for an odd group session or two, see if that sort of environment makes a difference. And even if it doesnt, it might help give a little morale boost at this point. I have to wonder though if I'll get the dreaded Week Two later down the line since I'm not writing to target. Hm.
