November is upon us. Time for hot chocolate, birthday cake and lots and lots of cussing. Yes, I mean Nanowrimo and the wonders of a 31 day sprint toward 50,000 words. I'm 4 days in and already wondering how long it will take me to hit a wall, fry my brain, find one-million other things to do in my day (that I'd never normally dream of doing).
Still, having 50,000 words to chop down, red-pen, reshape or even delete is better than having none at all. So I signed up. I have a great team of friends who are participating and supporting each other and I have hope that I'll finish this month with a first draft that will have a smidgen of potential for publication.
And I'll have a spotless house, Christmas planned and shopped for, schedule of work completed early, letters and cards written, emails sent, files tidied, new craft projects completed, whole house redecorated...you get my drift.
Procrastination isn't a bitch, she's 'Alternatively Motivated.'
So I need you to help me stay on task. Join me in the writing, cheer from me on the sidelines, kick my over-sized ass into touch if you see me floundering. It's going to take a miracle to keep me engaged...so send a little magiv my way and I'll be happy to do the same.
