NaNoWriMo: One-Third Gone

Oh dear, Inklings. I am so behind. I came down with a sinus infection back around day four and spent two days in bed (missing classes and a group meeting as well as my word count). It took me until today to get over the blinding headache, nausea, and light sensitivity. My WIP is stranded around 8.5k words and par for today is over 16k. 

What am I gonna do?!

Eat a lot of these:

Wish me luck and hug the Veterans in your life and maybe, just maybe, I’ll get this train back on track.

  1. What a drag that you had to take sick at this inopportune time. Hope you’re feeling better! The word count will come back as long as those headaches stay away.

    I’m going to have to check out those caramels. I’m always on the lookout for some writing fuel. 🙂

  2. My go-to remedy for colds and sinus infections is to thoroughly chew and swallow a clove of garlic every day until you’re well. Yes, a whole one. Yes, a raw one. It’s not fun, but it’s never failed me. I usually only need two days worth of garlic agony.
