Okay, so October has nearly come and gone. So, I’m looking at the calendar and see there are TWO weeks left and then BAM! It’s NaNoWriMo time. That’s National Novel Writing Month for those not in the know.
I have my novel idea and it’s ready to go but here’s my problem, Christmas is already around the corner. For me that means I need another short story to put up on the blog. Those take time. Lots of it. And it takes even more energy to promo it.
What to do, what to do. This is usually the time of year I say to myself — Self! You need to take a break. You’ve been writing all year.
But I have been taking breaks and pacing myself. I don’t need a break, says the writer who has named her writing time and routinely goes into work with bags under eyes.
Sometimes I wish I could clone myself to do what I need to do and want to do. But since technology hasn’t caught up to me yet, I’m going to have to do what I can to do what I want to do.
And if that means I’ll be going crazy during the month of November, so be it!
Bring on the crazy.
