Day 6

I'm taking time out of #nanowrimo to vote today - you should, too. Go #vote. I have taken my kids with me every year so they can see the process, stand in line, look at the pamphlets that we get handed on our way in the door. I think it's important for them to feel like they are a part of the process, even if they can't cast their own votes for president until the 2020 election.

Now back to NaNoWriMo - I'm on a roll this year! I don't know why, but I'm over 15,000 already - my fastest start ever! That probably means I'll slow down this weekend and rush to catch up next week, but that's OK. I feel like I'm finally back, and it feels great. My fingers are a little sore after a long session, but I'm enjoying it.

The biggest challenge I have is to get the words out before the kids get home from school. I feel such relief when I do because then I can focus on them and dinner and homework for the rest of the day. Yesterday that was not the case, but I still managed to hit my personal goal before bed time.

And I have to say that the family is very supportive again this year. Maybe it's because I've been doing it for a few years, but everyone understands when I say I need to take some time to finish a section or hit a certain word count. A little support goes a long way...

That said, I hope you have a great writing day, whether you get that one perfect sentence down, or you crush it and hit 5,000+ for the day. (I haven't done that yet, by the way, but I hope to on a crazy-good day. Yesterday came close.)

Happy writing and voting!
