Okay, so if you saw the blog yesterday, you know I went to the NaNoWriMo Kickoff party and…
Yeah. I guess I’m going to give it a shot. I’d say I’m going to do it, but I’ve accepted the fact that my life is not my own a good deal of the time, and making that 50,000 word goal is all going to depend on…how many excuses I wind up making. Or (hopefully) not making. Because let me tell you, sometimes scrubbing a toilet, sweeping down cobwebs, or organizing an armoire I haven’t opened in six months seems a million times easier than writing a couple thousand words. (and can someone tell my WHY ‘armoire’ is always red-lined?)
Okay…so I have the story I want to work on, in addition to working on two other WIPs (works in progress, for my non-writer friends). That makes the total word count I want to write in November…like way too high!
I need the name of a great therapist please.
This pep talk isn’t going quite the way I planned, but that’s okay. Not much in life does, right?
Anyway, I’ll be posting periodic updates. Probably on Sundays. Only because it will make me feel accountable to someone. All right, all right. So I’m hoping it will humiliate me into staying on track.
There are several more episodes on YouTube. If you’re interested, click on the YouTube link in the lower right hand corner and you’ll see links along the right side of the screen.
