Nano is hard

My writing has been inconsistent the last few days. I've written a couple of thousand words that will most likely be chopped during the editing phase. On Vespers book four, it's a slow start. I love the outline but I'm just not there on a few character backgrounds to feel comfortable starting. I'm working on it, but it's a slog. I've out in a few thousand words on my writing-just-to-write project, the never ending romance novels that I will never publish.

All that to say the words are happening, just not in the form I'd hoped. In past years, even six months ago, I would have beaten myself up for this. I'm in a zen place with regards to my writing, so I see this as practice for the publishable things.

How is your NaNo going?
