Time worked:  1:21

Work done:  More revising of AiP–I didn’t get far, but I did fix up some paragraphs that were very plain. It makes perfect sense that in NaNo, the focus is on quantity, because if you focus on quality, you can spend 45 minutes writing a few hundred words. It doesn’t really get you far. Unfortunately, that lack of quality can leave you with a whole book that needs fixing…I know that I would probably still be writing the first draft if I hadn’t sped through, ignoring how bad it was, but sometimes I miss the way I used to write. I don’t know why I don’t have that motivation without NaNo anymore.
