So I've been cruising along on NaNoWriMo, getting a little over 1700 words in each day, just ahead of the curve. Day 7 comes along, and, while on break and at lunch I get a little over 400 words done. No problem. I'll finish at home.
I get home, unpack my laptop...and the charger is missing. I forgot to bring it. You wouldn't think that would matter, except my laptop (since my personal one got stolen) is a piece of crap that can't hold a charge for twenty minutes. Seriously.
So I bust out another 400 or so words before the battery gives out. Less than half the day's quota all told.
I shall persevere!
I will make up the missing words today and bring myself back up to speed!
All hail NaNoWriMo!
