NaNo No Go

NaNo is a bust for me.

Let me clarify that: NaNo is a technical bust for me. And God knows, I don’t need any more bust in my life in any sense. Bwahaha. Sorry, couldn’t resist. Especially after receiving a DDD bra in the mail yesterday, but that’s another story.

I knew I would never achieve the NaNo goal going into it. While I didn’t expect it to become an epic fail so quickly, I knew there was no way in hell I was ready for the daily goal I’d have to set in order to meet the 50k.

So why would I subject myself to it? Sign up, and worse, tell others I’ve signed up for it?

Because I’ve written almost every day. My word count is low, but slowly rising. I knew it was going to take a lot of hard work to get where I want to be, but that’s okay. Hard work has never scared me. There’s proof of that in my last post, Pumpkin Halloween ’13! Thing is, I could let my mind wander while I did that physical hard work.

I can’t do that while writing.

So thank you, NaNo. It will be interesting to see where my average daily word count is hovering by the end of this year.

Oh, and apparently, I can still do the Mork handshake. Nanu Nanu! Gotta run, this doesn't go toward my word count.

Oh no! We're going to have to come up with a middle name for you if you're a triple D now! LOL

I'm seriously so proud of you for doing your best. That's all anyone can ask of themselves. I had a few unproductive days recently, but it feels so good to be back!

I disagree - it should count towards your word count total. I don't do the NANO thing - not good at putting that much pressure on myself. But hey, whatever you did get written - is that much closer to the end of another book!

I'm terrible. I never do NaNo. November always seems like my busiest month, but I am excited about the Young Adult I've started so maybe that will motivate to get some extra word counts in each day!

I would love to get back up to a speed where NaNo will be possible. Whatever gets me there, I'm all for it!

No, no DDD, please!! My back hurts enough already!

Go, DD! Nano is already a bust for me too. But I agree that just getting back into good writing habits is enough of a win!
