Yesterday was the first of November and you know what that means! NaNoWriMo has begun!! I’ve been diligently plugging away, starting at midnight on Halloween night. I wrote about 700 words before I went to bed, staying up way past my bed time in the process. When I woke up yesterday, I wasn’t really excited about my story idea and as I tried to muster up some motivation to work on it, I realized that I am sorely out of writing practice. My writing muscles are considerably flabby. *wobble wobble* Last year (or was it the year before?) I had at least done some prepwork for NaNoWriMo. Not to mention I had been a more consistent blogger. I managed to hit my qutoa for the day anyway. Yay! I know I’ll get back into the swing of things, but that isn’t to say I didn’t consider throwing in the towel already. But I’ll keep at it anyway. Because it’s worth it. Anyone else out there doing NaNo? Feel free to add me as a buddy!
