Soooo I’m fairly certain I’m going to be a NaNo Failure this year. I started out strong, keeping my word count a day or two ahead all the time. I went to my second write-in event last Friday and while I did get a lot of writing done, it kind of un-inspired me. We didn’t get any charms, which I know sounds ridiculous, but it’s probably the biggest thing that got me through last year. And I’m so fricking awkward in any type of social setting. I just felt like an idiot the whole time. Then my computer battery got down to 5% and the only way to get to a power strip was to move to a seat that would make me even more socially awkward and kind of claustrophobic (I just need ROOM when in groups).
I’m also not loving my story. It’s supposed to be a suspense, but I haven’t actually written anything suspenseful yet. To get some inspiration, I decided to start reading Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter (it’s so good, btw!) and then I got too swept up in it to do anything but read it in my spare time, so I haven’t written anything since Saturday.
If you’re participating in NaNo, how are you doing?
