So 1 November means it's time for NaNoWriMo, and not a year has passed since 2010 where I haven't taken part. Which means that yeah, I'm definitely doing that.
(I'm also doing a blog and vlog series to help with NaNo, if you need an extra dose of help and encouragement. This week's vlog post will follow immediately after this one.)
But in typical Misha style, it's 1 November and my month has already been screwed before it was even noon.
So I don't know how I'm going to do NaNo this year. It's been hard enough to be creative this year so far, and now my life has dialed the intensity up to an 11.
What about you? Doing NaNo? Feeling the pressure yet/already?
Methinks you've learned how to operate pretty well at an 11. Best wishes for success in ALL of you goals this month!ReplyDelete
Rollin' Rollin' Rollin' With 'em Punches!Delete
I am feeling pressure, but first drafts do that to me. I'd rather edit. But I'm in it to win it this month!ReplyDelete
I also find edits easier. Everything's already there and I just have to make it shine. ^_^Delete
Best of luck!
So sorry November is already proving to be overwhelming for you. Hope NaNo goes well for you despite that!ReplyDelete
I'm sorry to hear that this month is already proving challenging. Hopefully, things get better with life and writing.ReplyDelete
Wishing you lots of luck with NaNo. You're a pro at this so you'll catch up, even if the start was a bit shaky. Take good care. Have fun!ReplyDelete
Thanks! I'm hoping the catch up will go smoothly. :-)Delete
I can totally relate. I hate it when that happens. Keep moving forward like you always do and it will be great! Heading on to check out your tip now.ReplyDelete
Thanks. I'm hoping that if I keep going forward, I'll get a break.Delete
Start anyway! Go back and read all of your helpful and encouraging posts for inspiration.ReplyDelete
Hahahaha thanks. I really should take my own advice. :-PDelete
Sorry to hear the month is already being difficult. Hope things improve soon.ReplyDelete
There was one NaNoWriMo year where, because of life being extra difficult, I didn't get get started until November 10th. And somehow, I still managed to pull out a win.
That's impressive. Maybe I'll manage it too. ^_^Delete
Hope everything works out soon! I've never succeeded at NaNo but I've really only tried once. One of these days I'll give it a real try.ReplyDelete
Yeah it might be difficult for you now when you seem to be refining something instead of creating something new. On the other hand, I'm editing and rewriting for my NaNo this year, so if in doubt, rebel. :-DDelete
Hi Misha - well done on being prepared and committed to pulling NaNo out of the bag ... despite the difficult beginnings ... all the best - cheers HilaryReplyDelete
Thanks! I try my best. I just realized a while back that I can't slow down every time something goes wrong, or I'll never get something done.Delete
Sounds like you really have a role in NaNo. That's awesome and I'm guessing you'll find a way to manage it. Yes I feel stressed. It's after 9:00, and I haven't finished reading blogs for the day. Sigh.ReplyDelete
I know that feeling. At the moment, I'm back in survival mode and doing only what I can to get through the day, because I don't need extra stress right now.Delete
Not doing a NaNo but intend to write a few blog posts this month (one already done)ReplyDelete
All the best with those posts. :-)Delete
I considered doing Nano for a YA I'm rewriting, but I wasn't feeling good earlier this week, so I never made a decision.ReplyDelete
Good luck with your NaNo.
Yeah it's not really something to embark on when you're not feeling good.Delete
I can totally relate --trying to balance all the balls in the air! Good luck!!ReplyDelete
Best of luck with your juggling as well. :-)Delete
*hugs* I find it admirable that you're even trying NaNo after the past few years you've had. I hope it works out for you.ReplyDelete
I'm feeling pressure to write my blog but not to complete NaNoWriMo. Ugh. I don't know how you NaNo writers do it! I wish you the best of luck in completing your goals this month!ReplyDelete
Thanks! Best of luck with your blog!Delete
That's why I've never done NaNo. My Novembers are always dialed up to 11.ReplyDelete
Yeah mine too. I don't even know why. :-/Delete
No NaNo for me, thanks. But I might take a blogging break to focus on a new novel.ReplyDelete
Ooh! Best of luck!Delete
