November 18 Day 18 of NaNoWriMo 2020

¡Ay, caramba! The world formed an unbroken line leading to my front door yesterday. Silly me when they knocked, I answered. I was behind schedule before my alarm woke me, and a never-ending game of Whac-A-Mole ensued. By the time my regularly scheduled 9 pm writing session rolled around, I couldn’t keep my eyes open. The day’s tardy theme continued, but undeterred, at 10:30, I sat down to write. Pounding keys is more fun than whacking moles and more satisfying. The evening’s count was a whopping 250 words, but I am ecstatic with every single syllable.

November 17 Day 17 of NaNoWriMo 2020

My NaNo word count is going nowhere fast. But after major surgery and a mandatory week’s stay in the hospital, my sweetheart is home and doing well. My unrelenting optimism was hard at work, assuaging my general anxiety and dismissing the fleeting moments of dread that threatened to overwhelm me in the weeks leading up to his operation. Each passing day brings increasing relief as life begins to resemble my memory of what I once considered normal.

The remodeling project crawls towards its inevitable conclusion, and my muse is finding her space in my life again. I have missed my friend, and I look forward to spending more time writing with her.

November 14 Day 14 of NaNoWriMo 2020

Yesterday’s late-night writing session added another 300 words to my total. According to my NaNo stats page, I am on track to reach my goal in March.  The thought makes me smile, and it stifles the doubting voice in my head. The little devil whispers in my ear, telling me I can never finish a novel. If I allowed those words to influence me, I would give up. But I know better. Ray Bradbury said, “You fail only if you stop writing,” and I don’t plan to stop anytime soon.

Through sheer determination, my Nano total has reached the foothills of 5,000 words. Some may scoff, but I count it as a major success. My scheduled writing time of 10pm is approaching, and we will see if Friday the 13th offers any change in luck.
