NaNoWriMo: Week 3

Hey guys, this is Abi here,
And it's the 3rd week in November, which means that my 3rd NaNoWriMo update is due!
So here it is:

NaNoWriMo: Week 3
Day: 21
Word count: 17,098
Status: Have lowered my goal to 35,000, because that goal is manageable.

Because 35,000 is (at the moment) a lot more manageable.

Here is my thought log for the week:
Monday 14th November
Words written: 1000
Word count: 8426 words
Thoughts: I'm just getting back into writing after a 4 day break. This is fine. I'm doing well. Not going to reach 50,000 at this point, but doing well.

Tuesday 15th November
Words written: 0
Word count: 8426
Thoughts: One day off is not vital. I can still pull it back tomorrow.

Wednesday 16th November
Words written: 1,629
Word count: 10,055
Thoughts: Got a daily word count, feel so accomplished. It's too late for 50,000, but if I continue to hit the daily word count, I can reach 35,000 (roughly), so I'm going with that!
Also, HIT 10,000 words!

Thursday 17th November
Words written: 1,667
Word count: 11,722
Thoughts: Another daily word counts. Hitting that word count!

Friday 18th November
Words Written: 1,023
Word count: 12,745
Thoughts: So, I didn't get as high a word count as I was hoping, but I will be writing 2K a day over the weekend, so I can (hopefully) catch up!

Saturday 19th November
Words written: 2,334
Word count: 15,079
Thoughts: 5,000 words in three days! Never felt more accomplished!

Sunday 20th November
Words written: 2,019
Word count: 17,098
Thoughts: Hoping for 20,000 by Tuesday, but I'll be fine if I don't reach that :).

Monday 21st November:
10 days left!
Words written (at present): None
Current word count: 17,098
Thoughts: Just the normal 1,667 word count today.

So that is my update for NaNoWriMo 2016! I know that my writing has been a bit all over the place this weekly, but at least it's been fairly consistent, and that's what I'm aiming for!
If anyone knows how to officially lower the word count, let me know! And if you feel like letting me know how your NaNoWriMo is going, also comment that!
I hope you all have a wonderful day, and I will see you all soon!
