Day Two

Friday, 2 November 2012

It's day two of NaNo (only just barely-- it's 0451 here) and already I feel tragically behind. I had a goal of 1650 words for yesterday and I only wrote 1088. I have to say it was a little disheartening.

I feel like this was a bad time to try it, with all of the drama at home, but then is there ever a good time? I think doing NaNo may be like having kids. there never really is a right time, you just have to take the leap.

I'm going to make myself keep going, although last night as I struggled to find any inspiration I was ready to give up. But if it weren't for NaNo I probably wouldn't have 1088 words toward a new story. I probably wouldn't have any.

The reality has sunk in that I need to write my articles more than ever. This year seems to be flying by and I really need the money. Add to that the stress of not knowing if we'll even have a roof over our heads in a month or two and honestly, I am freaking out.

Which could be why I'm blogging at this ridiculous hour.

Nonetheless, I have to keep going. I have 10 things on my to-do list today and unfortunately they are all pretty important. So, I guess I should try to get a little more sleep.

After all, the kids will be up in about an hour.


  1. Best of luck with it, I think you are right there is never a good time. I knew this year wasn't right for me but hopefully next year I will feel ready. I hope you get your articles written too!

    1. Thanks! I'm doing okay-- not fabulously-- on word counts this weekend, but then I don't usually write articles on the weekend. Who knows what it'll be like next week. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you for next year! :)
