My word count 18,634 to be on target I should have written at least 25,000 words. No it is not time to give up.
Putting things in perspective I need to write 2,092 words to achieve fifty thousand words by November 30th today I wrote 2,207 words.
All goals need to be evaluated every now and then. Recently I updated my business plan and realized how out of date some of the information was. If you are trying to loose weight there may come a time in which you decide the program you are on is not for you. Perhaps you are dating someone and suddenly realize he is a jerk.
Time allows you to adjust your perspective. Half way through NaNoWriMo I had to step back and look at things differently, this helped me make the necessary adjustments.
Sometimes you don’t need to quit you just need to change your perspective.
