The Words: 2,027 written on my Neo.
Today was the first time this month that I thought about quitting before I hit the daily goal. I had to work this afternoon, and though it was only for a few hours, I was there about an hour later than I expected to be. So I got a late supper and I had a headache to boot.
I did a few sprints on my own while my 8-year-old daughter did some crafts nearby. When I had gotten to 840 words, I decided I didn’t really want to write any more. It was almost time to put my daughter to bed anyway, and I told her I was done. She convinced me to do a sprint until her bedtime came (11 minutes), so I did, and got another 608 words. At that point, I was close to the daily goal, so I decided to do one final sprint alongside @NaNoWordSprints on Twitter, which got me the rest of the way to my count for the day.
The Story: Today’s writing mostly focused on the concern about the nemesis nation causing trouble in the area where both the nemesis country’s army and the main country’s army are mustered (separately) against Antios’s army. While the main country’s people feel that Antios is much too great a threat to worry about their old feud with their nemesis, they’re not sure the people from the nemesis country agree. Yes, this would be a lot easier if these countries had names.
