In the mind of a Writer

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.

  1. Sorry to hear that your rheumatological problems are acting up. Mine too; sometimes I feel like I’m typing with claws. Obamacare is really a Republican idea; I was for single-payer or a strong governmental option with the lower-class tax credits we got. The contracting process was painfully ridiculous! No one could fix the problem, because there were hundreds, virtually all of which resided in the space where one contractor left off and another picked up – what geeks call the “hooks and handles” of software. Still, I would have hoped that a second-term administration might know how to administrate a little better. I look forward to you plot posts about your NaNo, and good luck catching up 😎
