There are seven writing days left in November and I’m confident I will have 50,000 words by the end of this month. That is not to say it’s been easy. I’ve written every single day — many more words than usual — and fatigue is starting to set in. I’ve never done rock-climbing or even climbed a wall, but this image sums up how I’m feeling today.
While the end is in sight, I’m still smack-dab in the middle of things. Reaching for toe and hand holds as I navigate this first draft. Novel-writing is an endurance activity and my brain and sitting muscles are feeling the strain. Good thing I’ve got the reserves to get me over the top because quitting is not an option.
I will prevail.

Hang in there!
Thank you, Sandy! I’m clinging by my fingernails at this point. 🙂
Go, Tracy! Novel-writing IS an endurance test, and you are passing it with flying colors. I’m rooting for you all the way — and also wishing you a very happy birthday! Here’s to a great year ahead!
