NaNo writers. NaNo Rebels. We are into the home stretch. Ten days of NaNoWriMo are left. I hope everyone is doing well. If not, hang in there. I’m here, as well as many other writers, to support and encourage.
This past week was not good for me, if it’s any consolation to those who are struggling. I made plans to finish two stories this past weekend. Because of some unplanned issues (namely sleeping before picking up my sister-in-law), writing fell through. And if I didn’t have to work this morning, I would have put the finishing touches on one story at least. Such as it is with the writer’s life. It would be ideal if all we did was write all day. But some of us have day jobs, family to care for, errands to run. So on and so on.
The more I think about my goals, the more I’m starting to think that I might not meet them. I’m trying to be optimistic, though. The last story I want to finish doesn’t appear long. But I haven’t written the ending. So it could be longer than I anticipated. I’ll just have to see where the story takes me.
The holidays are going to be tough. As the case with pretty much every writer I know. Family obligations and working some crazy shifts the week of Thanksgiving have me creating some possible solutions to meet my goals. Writing first thing in the morning is one solution. Writing on certain nights would be possible, as long as I have some coffee or Monster on hand.
So, this is where I stand today. I want to hear from my fellow writers and rebels on your progress. What are your plans these last ten days? Do you believe you’ll meet your goals? Why or why not? I’m curious to what everyone has to say.
I’ll see you December 1st with my final update. I’ll let you know how it pans out.
