November 8 Day 8 of NaNoWriMo 2020


Yesterday did not begin as I planned. It progressed by presenting me with a never-ending list of chores that were completely different and in total opposition to my well-conceived writing strategy. Unfortunately, many items were necessary, and my choice boiled down to whether I wanted to deal with them now or later. I finished these annoying tasks and moved forward. A much-needed nap punctuated the day’s non-stop activity. Then, after adding a whopping 327 words to my total, it was time for bed.

Feeling somewhat wiser, I composed a note which I left on next year’s calendar. It admonishes future me to assume I will write for NaNo. I also told myself to guarantee a better start, I should be sure to complete any ongoing projects in October. Live and learn.

Are you writing for NaNo?

How is Day 8 progressing?


Keep on writing.

  1. No, I am not writing for NaNo. I was hosting a weekly event which stifled my ability to be involved in other events. With that said, I’m taking a hiatus from hosting the event and I already feel relieved. Good luck!

    • Thank you, Eugenia. Mine was a last minute decision, and I was not expecting much. Still I needed a kick in the pants get restart my writing and so far it is having the desired effect. I’m glad you are finding some breathing room. Take care of yourself. 💗
