BAD: I can't believe that we are almost half way through Nano and I have written so little. My RSI has flared horribly and I seem to be coming down with a cold. Plus I decided that what I had written was meandering, tragically semi-autobiographical, and at least three novel ideas in one.
BETTER: All of those novel descriptions are probably true. However if I jettison what I have already done, there will be nothing so little to salvage that I'll never win. So I'm keeping all the storylines in there, a la Dallas it-was-all-a-dream sequences and maybe some of them will be incorporated later.
GOOD: The other more exciting news is that I've found a premise that excites me; is not too kooky but potentially funny and feels like I'm writing in my voice. Perhaps I just needed to write those other 12.5k words as a warm up.
BETTER: Back to the grindstone!
