before I begin writing something brand new. fiction.
in other words: two days to NaNoWriMo. wow. can’t believe it’s almost here.
today, the nerves started to settle in: how am I going to write an average of 1,667 words/day? :-O
especially with work being as crazy as it has been the last three weeks.
the life coach in me says to just focus on the feeling state when I write…it feels so good…remember how much you love it. so do it!
but, what if I miss a day?
then I’ll have to write 2x that figure. or 1,667 divided by number of remaining days. that feels a bit better. 😉
I have my story outline. theme. characters. (three central characters.) goals. motivations…internal and external. (mainly internal, as that’s how I roll.) conflicts. and two pinch points. one better than the other.
I don’t have to be the next Sarah Gruen, but I will finish. I will. I will. see you on the other side! last year I did 50 blogs in November…roughly 30K words. this year, I’m doing 50K words. yikes!
rock on people, and don’t forget that voice in you that urges you to do more, be more, give more…it’s sooo worth it.
