Reached 1st Burn Out Day

I’ve officially reached my first day of burnout.  Even though I’ve only written 177 words this morning, I’m still motivated to write.  Problem is I feel like a slug.  So I expect the words to flow slowly today, maybe finishing up 3500 words by tonight.

How am I dealing with the burn out.  So far I’ve parked it on the couch with a notebook and a glass of ice tea.  Am taking a break, watching Becker, one of my all time favorite sitcoms.  Seriously thinking about making gluten free peanut butter cookies for me and the beagles.  Other than that, I don’t plan on leaving the house today or the couch much for that matter.

Today also marks the 1/3 point towards close of contest.  I’m trying not to dwell on it too much.  If you read my concerns yesterday, you already known I’m not at the 1/3 mark of the story.  So the thought of putting in extra time to write is probably adding to the burnout.  I’m not too concerned about catching up.  Doing the 3 Day Novel Contest this year taught me how to keep it on track in a much shorter period of time.
