So I'm assuming everyone noticed that there was not an update last week on how the first week went of NaNoWriMo. . . That's because it didn't go well. Like only 400 words in 8 days kind of well. What is it about suddenly giving yourself a deadline that makes writers block engulf your entire life! I knew that I needed to be writing words, but just no words would come.
So i have now gotten to the point that I'm pretty sure I will not be finishing the 50,000 word goal by the end of the month. And by finally making this realization, I was able to free up my words, free up my ideas, and finally be able to write again.
Maybe it's just a kind of writing day where my mind can finally realease and let me write.
I blame my wonderful candle that smells amazing.
And the fact that Simeon got me roses cause I was having a rough week.
yep, the roses inspired at least 1,000 words out of me yesterday. Which made me feel awesome and that I could actually do this.
That being said, it's also the only words that were written this week. But that's better than last week. I like my small victories. maybe I'll find some time this weekend in between cleaning and working on homework to tackle another 1000 words.
I just have to remember to take it one sit down at a time. One cup of cocoa at a time. One idea blast at a time. It's not a magic formula, but there are magical times where writing can just suddenly become easy. Where suddenly you have too many emotions that just need to get out.
I think this is the most that I've ever written in a blog post and probably the most real that I've ever been as well. I'll have to work on that I guess. So expect some more heart felt, emotional posts from me in the future!
