Wednesday, NaNo, & Naps

Wednesday, 14 November 2012

It's supposed to be Writing Wednesday, but so far no luck.

I'm not sure what is going on with me, but I feel downright icky-- like nauseous and tired. I'm actually dreading tonight. I'll be coaching cheerleading from 6-8:30 then teaching a cardio class 8:45-9:45. Honestly, I'd rather just go home now and sleep.

I started the day raring to go. I had my notes for two articles I was supposed to write done and had every intention of getting on with my NaNoing. Then my husband texted me to say he got the dream job (it looks like we will be having Christmas after all) and I had to wake my mom at the ungodly hour of six am and ring my critique partner to tell them. Next came a gripey hour with Bug (a tooth has just pushed through, not really 'in' yet, but visible on her gum line) then when she decided to nap I stole a cheeky 45 minutes myself. Now here I am blogging in the car in front of school. Where did the day go? Seriously?

After I get Hunter, I'll have to take the kids home and feed them and me in preparation for cheer. Then hustle off to set up the room and get started. It's unlikely I'll write any before that. Tonight I'll be too exhausted to write and probably come home, shower, and sleep instead.

I can and will catch up my NaNo, but what scares me is how easy it is to get out of the habit of writing daily. I once read that it takes 21 days of doing something everyday to make it a habit. I hoped NaNo was going to make daily writing a habit for me.

I guess there is still time, though. If I do hit 50k words by the 30th, I still need another 10k so I was planning on continuing the madness for an additional week to finish the book. Maybe I can still make it a habit. Either way, I'm still pleased with what I've accomplished.

I just wish there was more time in my schedule for naps.
