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.
