NaNoWriMo 2021! Day 33/Day 17

Advice: Don’t let guilt and shame get in your way. Guilt is one of the easiest ways to lose steam. Even if you’re behind, don’t let yourself believe you have already failed. Try to stay confident. You can always pull back ahead…and any words you’ve written by the end of the month are more than you started with!

Prompt: Dream on. What did your character dream about last night? Was it related to her predicament? Was it a ho-hum realistic dream, or a shadowy Jungian hellscape loaded with symbolism (or giant cheese monsters)? Is she a lucid dreamer? If she doesn’t remember her dreams, what about her daydreams or fantasies? Where does her mind wander when she’s drifting off?

barely on track

I'm not doing as well on the overall wordcount this year as I have in the past...work issues are just not being conducive to focus and willpower.

but I did get nearly 2k today...and I'm a smidge over where I need to be, so I can't really complain.
Next week will be better...I hope, since I'm off most of the week.

backrose_17 You get to fill us in for Thursday. Good luck!
