My pace has really slowed over the past week, mainly due to work and visits to the city which took away all my oomph. One of the trips to Perth was to bring Eldest home from university for the holidays (finished first year already - where did that time go?). The other was to do a course for work, after which I had to write a 500 word reflection. I don't know whether it was because I'm doing NaNoWriMo or not, but those 500 words seemed like 50000 until I'd done them.
Anyway, 6500 words (or so) to go and 5 days to do it. It's looking do-able. I'm still feeling like the story is rubbish, but there's something there that's polishable and I've been taking lots of notes as I go along, so... off I go again!
