It's just a wee bit embarrassing to be the San Francisco Municipal Liaison and be THIS far off the intended word count. How far? Well, by close of yesterday evening (Friday 11/20) I should've been at 33,340. And as of this morning I'm at 26,507. That's 6,833 words behind. Because we Nano'ers keep scrupulous track of such things.
Here we are, Saturday morning in San Francisco. It's chill and crisp, no more rain in sight. A beautiful Fall morning sliding into Winter. And as it warms up, you'll think it might turn out to be Spring. And I'm writing this in a cafe on Clement Street, sipping my coffee. And musing on how tired I am, and how dehydrated and drinking coffee will probably worsen my dehydration. And that the elevator in my building has been out for the last four days and lugging my files and laptop and extension cords is really not the same as using a stairmaster.
And wondering how many times I will end up listening to Moby's "Extreme Ways" (aka theme from the Bourne films) before I feel artificially motivated enough to tackle my skinny word count. I think I'm going on number five . . .
So, how's YOUR motivation, eh?
