I’m not doing NaNoWriMo this year because I’m sick and beyond busy. It makes me sad.
Would it be bad to not do NaNoWriMo this year? Things are hard with school, work, and a social life taking up so much time. I don’t see when I could write. Or should I just let myself know I’m not going to get anywhere near winning but do it anyway just so I can join the fun and then continue the story in December when I’ll have more time? I could challenge myself the 50k in 30 days to see. I dunno. Thoughts?
I wish NaNoWriMo was going on right now. I’ve been coming up with things to write about and have been in the mood to write, but I’m trying to wait until NaNo so I don’t waste an idea that could have been golden.
I think that I’m finally starting to like writing again. I was burnt out after NaNoWriMo 2011… but now I think I’m ready to start writing again. This time, it will be a more steady pace and not just going straight from nothing to a novel and back to nothing again. I know my writing ability has gotten worse that it used to be.. but I think my mental place is starting to settle again. I think like a writer. There are stories in my head. I see things so clearly, I forget what’s real or not. I used to think that this was a problem.. but now I think it could just mean that I am a writer. I would love to start writing again. I hope I can get into a steady habit of writing daily and actually finishing a story or poem or something. I don’t know what I want to do, but I know that I want to write.
I think I’m going to start writing again. Instead of doing NaNoWriMo, I’ll start to edit my first novel. Hopefully I will be able to find the time and determination to get it done. I want to at least make a bowling ball size dent in it. It’d be incredible if I could get it published and start making some money.
