Getting Whupped

Last night the NaNoWriMo site was down. This may have been a good thing because I’ve been torturing myself comparing my progress to that of my writing buddies.

Here’s the thing. I’m getting my butt WHIPPED.

I’m ahead of where I should be—I’ve already met today’s word count. I’m on track to where I want to be—2000 words a day. My little progress bar chart is proceeding nicely. I have a few light red days on my calendar, but I have some bright green days, too. I’m making steady progress.

But some of my buddies have THOUSANDS more words than I do. Several of them have hit the 20,000 word mark already, including Natalie and Kelly.

I shouldn’t let it bother me. I’m where I should be. But my competitive streak is taking a beating.

Might I humbly (and probably annoyingly) suggest you just stop looking at your buddy list? :)

Yeah, I had to. I was just getting massively overwhelmed. Doesn't help that I'm behind 3000 words now.

Hey... Look at ME on your buddy list. You're so whipping my butt. It should make you feel better :-)
