I have been going back and forth about whether or not to write this blog. Then, once I decided I would write it, I chickened out about posting it a little bit. Not because I care if I piss people off, but because I don’t want to seem… pretentious? Full of it? I don’t know.
I saw that someone did this tag and I thought “Hey, I want to do that.” So I’m doing it, regardless of whether I’m tagged or not.
I know, I did not include Triscuit in my “Meet My Kitties Week.” Put your pitchforks down and let me explain…
Whoopdie doo time for another book review. That wasn’t as sarcastic as it sounded, I just thought I would be whimsical and start with a rhyme. You know what, let’s just forget that first sentence even happened.
For the past month, I’ve been furiously writing. I’ve developed characters, moved plots, decided on a name for my book, and watched my word count crawl closer and closer to my 50,000 goal. I updated you all every week, bringing you along with me during my triumphs and my failures. But I know what you’re thinking. Dude, it’s May 1st, did you win or not?
Hello, friends! I’ts time to check in on my NaNo progress and I’ll tell you now, it’s not what I want it to be. Week three has been a real slog.
Word Count: 31,834
On target? Nope. I need to hit 35,000 today to be on target. I might be able to do it, but I don’t have the will. It’s not writer’s block, it’s fatigue.
Challenges: I’m having a real hard time getting any writing done. It’s been a pretty hectic week, and by the time I open Scrivener it’s like I lost all the will to work on a project. I would say I need a break, but I didn’t write last weekend. I am going to work really hard to get to 35K today. It’s Friday so maybe I can make some magic happen.
Victories: None. Absolutely none. The plot is still moving along, but nothing brilliant or revolutionary has come out of week three.
Thanks for checking in! I hope you all have a great weekend.
