NaNoWriMo Day 26: New Goal? Finish Tomorrow

My word count at the end of today is

I wrote nearly 3500 words today and it felt great. I made a lot of progress on the story; and there is much to write. But in terms of NaNoWriMo, I am 2550 words from the 50,000 word goal. Soon. Very soon.

Tonight we had date night and went to see "Blue Jasmine" at The Academy. Afterward, I went to the store to buy the ingredients to try the recipe I want to make for Thanksgiving. I've never made it and thought it would be good for us to test it on ourselves rather than our multi-faceted family gathering. I hear it beeping in the oven as I type; so I will keep this short.

My new goal is that I will past 50k tomorrow. I will reach the NaNoWriMo goal and I will keep typing. I do want to finish this story. Then I will let it rest when the story is done and come back in a few months to begin the editing process, which will be extensive. And in the meantime, between the end of the first draft of this novel and the first revision of this novel, I will return to - and hopefully finish - the memoir; again.
