Home stretch!

Including today, it's the last week of Camp NaNaWriMo, and I think I'm going to make it! I was doing really well up until the last couple of days, being ahead of my wordcount trajectory by about 5%, and then I made the mistake of actually finishing the writing of a story, at which point I then started reading and rereading it to edit it. Editing does not increase wordcount by a significant amount, so over two days it fell back to just keeping up with projection. I've moved back to actual writing and hopefully will do a bit of a push over the next two days and get this done early. Woo!

I'm not sure I'm happy with this story, but I'm not sure how to improve it. I'll probably just post it soon and move on. (Well, I will if I can think of a title for it.) I've been a little disappointed with my writing and ideas lately - not plot-driven, too emotional or philosophical. I don't do that kind of thing well. I probably need inspiration, which means sitting down and watching some episodes, which, I suppose, isn't a bad thing. :)
