Hello writer bugs!
Hope NaNoWriMo is treating you well.
Unfortunately, I haven’t made much progress word count wise since last week. Still hovering around 10,000 words. Frankly, writer’s block hit me like a brick wall this week. And it’s depressing. And then when you’re depressed about not writing, it makes you want to not write even more. (and wallow in a pit of sadness like Edgar Allen Poe.)
However, as I write this post, I feel my writer mojo coming back. I might not make my original goal of 40,000, but that’s fine. Not out of the running yet, folks. I will say this, NaNoWriMo is really pushing me to be creative. Since I’m adding new scenes, it’s making me consider each scene. Which is good, I needed a push. (This WIP needed a push.)
Despite being behind word count wise, I am feeling inspired, which I haven’t felt in awhile, if I’m honest. And that feels like a win. But we’re getting into the final days of NaNoWriMo and I’m going to make the most out of it. Now if I can only get my narrator to stop monologuing about… existing???
How’s your NaNo project coming along? Talk to me in the comments!
Write with heart,
