I feel like I’ve been neglecting this part of my writing life. If I’m 100% honest I have fallen a slave to the time shaker that is NaNoWriMo .jennifer-egan-quote-630x473.png

I’m 29120 words in. More than half way with my first draft for my novel. I hate being so competitive, because I end up feeling like I do now exhausted and guilty. I have neglected nearly everything and everyone in my mad quest to get a 50 000 thousand word story down. It is very far from being finished. Even when I get to 50 000 words,ย it may not be finished and it will need lots of re drafting. I’ve been having permanent head aches. I’ve turned into a demon bitch from hell. Snapping at all and everything. I don’t need think I need a haunted hotel to go insane! I do need a ghost writer.ย IF I EVER FINISH THIS NOVEL CAN SOMEONE WRITE AS SONG LIKE THIS BUT ADD COCKTAILS TO IT AND JAZZ IT UP A BITmedium_Writing_Meme

It would be so easy to give in now. Only 8 days to go!

Nope not giving up but I am taking a break from technology for tonight.

THIS IS MY POST.. Can you detect how exhausted of words I am?

I’m not going to say my piece is shit because it might not be and I have this crazy annoying mantra

” I succeed in everything I do”

Who picked that one? Aaaaargh.

P.S. no cocktails lately, especially not ย tonight as I don’t have the strength to bring a glass to my lips.

  1. I managed just over 50 000 words! RESULT! Thanks for the encouragement.


  2. The whole concept of writing a novel (or even a first draft of a novel) in a month seems a bit…intense! You can do it, but also recognize when you need to take a break. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I signed up for NaNo…that is as far as I was able to go with it…my demons of failure and self worth shot me down. I am also scared for the whole to see me. It’s like I am going to be naked on stage, spotlight…chained to the spot…be proud you are able to go with your heart and words, feel victory…hug yourself…wrap yourself in chocolate…you got this nailed.

  4. Keep going, Daisy! You’re doing well. The first draft’s not supposed to be anything like finished, so don’t worry about that. Just get it out there! ๐Ÿ™‚
