Pros: I have written every day except last Friday (when I got a killer migraine that necessitated going to bed whimpering and wondering if my head would ever stop hurting).
Cons: Hitting 50k has gotten… more difficult, and may not happen.
For those participating in NaNoWriMo, how are you faring? For those not participating, how’s life treating you?
I vacillated pretty much all of October between whether or not to join NaNoWriMo this year. I don’t really
have enough time,
I don’t really like my idea,
I have work deadlines this month,
I feel sick too often because I have allergies and my colds when I get them are never ending and cabin fever is definitely kicking in.
But then, I remember
how amazing it feels
to finish a piece of writing.
it is a goal of mine
to become a writer,
which I don’t currently consider myself,
because I’m not writing every day.
& I remember
that there will always
be more work
so if something is important to me
I need to figure out how to work it into my life
So I have taken the plunge. Signed up to strive to write 50k words this November 2020. I have met my daily goal for November 1, and am feeling hopeful, and am hoping that I’ll meet the 50k goal, but if I don’t, thinking that at least this could be a kickstart towards writing every day.
Anyone else hopping on the NaNoWriMo train? Leave me a comment below – let me know how the beginning is going for you!
