NaNo 2017 – Day 29 – Just Keeps Going

I think my family is purposely trying to kill me. Or, at the very least, get me to participate in family activities rather than simply write all month long. The appointment we had last night was only going to take an hour, my wife assured me over an over. Three hours later, we were home. πŸ™‚ The appointment itself was only ninety minutes long, but the commute each way added another forty-five minutes. Hence the three hours.

Hitting that was a surprise and brought a huge smile to my face. That was for a couple reasons. It means I’m in the home stretch, which is always nice when writing a new books. It also means I survived the 60% blahs – that time when many authors hate their story, want to quit and can’t see any way forward.
