Treading water

Can I be catching up and falling behind at the same time? For those who don’t know I am participating in National Novel Writing Month 2018. It happens in November.
The idea is to write the first draft of a novel of 50,000 words  in thirty days.
My first mistake was to fail to clear the month in my diary. This meant that I started off with a deficit and I’ve been catching up ever since. But the relentless daily target of 1667 words means that on the days I write, although I’m writing more than the daily target (catching up), I’m still falling behind.
Today’s par for day 12 is 20,000 words and I’ve written 15,318. Luckily at this stage in the process quality is not an issue it’s all about the number.
