It’s hard to believe that this time last year I was participating in NaNoWriMo and creating the book that I spent the weekend selling. I had decided not to do NaNoWriMo this year as I didn’t have a project in the wings or one I wanted to stop to do something else.
A friend of mine talked me into signing up for it. I thought I would cheat a little–I would keep writing my Olivia mystery and just use the word count for what I wrote during November. I had hoped that this decision would force me to write every day.
Ha! I wrote the first three days of November, then I got 45 papers to grade from my students. They were very poorly written papers, so it took me a long time to grade them and left me horribly depressed. I’ve only written two days since then.
Writing is such a strange beast.
I went to my writers’ group last night and have become inspired to keep plugging away. I hope to spend the morning today writing.
Gosh, what a boring blog! Should I post it? I guess I better so I can log out and begin work on my novel.
