And here comes the week of no writing. As you might know by now, I am participating in a month long writing frenzy. This is the week that usually ends up with me giving up and not writing anymore. Usually because I’m bored with my work. Last week though?
I just didn’t write.
It upsets me that instead of writing I’ve been running around the house, cleaning and keeping myself active. Yes, the house needed to be clean. No, I didn’t need to do more than I usually do. However, I am trying to lose weight and this is the best way I know how. As long as I’m not sitting, I’m not eating.
And so, I haven’t been writing.
On the downside, I haven’t progressed at all. On the upside, I have lost some weight and will continue to do so. Right now, I’m just trying to figure out a method where I can be active and write. I’m thinking of writing in minute increments (like fifteen) and then doing a mad dash around the house for a few minutes and clean/be active.
Anyway, it’s easy to say that I definitely will not be making the 50K. Oh well… I’ll still be writing because that’s me, but I don’t see myself winning NaNoWriMo. Instead, I will focus on my writing as it is and keep at it. Plus, there’s always Camp NaNoWriMo and NaNoWriMo next year. From this point on, Monday posts will be my writing/life updates.
