Many of you will recognize that NaNo is short for NaNoWriMo, which is short for National Novel Writing Month (www.NaNoWriMo.org). Because I am in the throes of trying to write a “novel” this month. (Whatever that means!) I have been negligent about my posts here. My sincere apologies.
My hope is that I will find some portion of my NaNo material that I can also use here. Yes, I still hold down a day job. Yes, I still have family to care for. Yes, I hold chronic pain at bay (sometimes). So you see, we can’t do it all, no matter how much we try. At least I tried and I learned I can’t do it all. (I really should let the rest of you speak for yourselves. Some of you are really impressive!)
Thank you for your readership. I promise to post something more interesting by the end of the week.
I am applauding your efforts to have it all despite knowing it is not possible. It is living as full as you can though and that is a wonderful thing. especially for someone who lives with chronic pain too.
For 29 years I have known it can be a struggle to do it, but the alternative is no choice at all So I will take what I can and do with it what I am able.
My wishes for a great word count and content you are happy with ~
Thank you so much for your kind wishes! I wish you a day of comfort and joy 🙂
Good luck with NaNo! I’m doing it for the first time this year and finding that 1,667 words a day takes a lot out of me.
Last year was my first time and I was a winner, so I know I can do it again. Although you are correct it takes a lot out of me, too. I started using 750words.com to try to force myself to write even a little every day and then catch up when I can. Good luck to you, too, Trisha! You can do it 🙂
