NaNoWriMo Break

NaNoWriMo Break

I am about 6K behind, with NaNoWriMo, but I plan to really buckle down this week.  I love it when my characters and muses work on a scene that isn’t even in the original outline. (It gives me a bigger word count and adds to the story. )
For those who are struggling with their muses and/or character . . . sometime just going with their flow is the best bet.

I have been filling out surveys/interviews. . . I enjoy extra promotions. Here are a few interviews I was in . . .

NaNoWriMo 2013 so far. . .

NaNoWriMo so far. . . eh.


It’s November 8, 2013, and I am so far behind on my NaNoWriMo. Between my depression and my arthritis, it’s been a struggle this year. (Nightmares make me exhausted only to have me sleep more to have me wake up with locked up pain in my hands. This is crazy. I’m afraid to see how screwed up the medical system is now that our dumb president has messed everything up.)

Anyway, this is my fourth year of NaNoWriMo, and I have realized that some years are easier than others. (I had migraines my first year, and I was didn’t write much the first ten days, so I know I can do the same this year . . . one word: caffeine!)

For newbies or fellow struggling writers: don’t let other word counts discourage you. (The race is with yourself; just take it one day at a time. Remember to have Fun!)

For my writing friends and successful NaNoWriMo members: keep up the good work and make sure your characters and/or muses keep you on the edge.

I would love to write more on the blog, but I need to rest my hands, so I can work on my NaNoWriMo project. I should have two finished novels and a novella trilogy completely by the end of this NaNoWriMo.
