NaNo Fail

I hate to admit that I’m not going to make the National Novel Writing Month deadline.

I had made it to 15,641 words but two weeks ago I hit a wall that I couldn’t surpass. I got sick one Friday night. Although I felt better the next day the wife then fell ill. Then my oldest daughter caught it and was out of school for three days. Then I caught it again (much harder this time) and was out of commission for three more days.

By the time I got to the end of the week I gave up. Although I had tried to keep one day ahead of the game it was too much to finish, especially knowing that I wouldn’t be able to write during the Thanksgiving Holiday.

But I still plan on finishing this book. I have a layout that’s over 75% complete and I just HAVE to finish it. For myself if for anybody at all.
