Noveling Madness

NaNoWriMo has been in progress for 4 days and I am amazed at how many bloggers are participating and still posting blogs. All of my spare time is spent writing my novel. I don’t know how they do it. Right now I am so focused on reaching my goal that I really can’t think of anything else.

I even dream about it. I have had dreams about my novel since Saturday night. It is not good. I think I am worrying too much. I can’t think about NaNo 24 hours a day though that is what I am doing. It’s getting exhausting and it has only been 4 days.

I’m not giving up though. That would be crazy. Plus, Leland says he is planning a celebration for me when I reach 50,000 words and I really don’t want to miss out on that!

NaNoWriMo word count: 4094

Good luck with the novel. Trouble with the blog a day, it makes it harder for me to keep up with the reading.. I am exhausted and need sleep

You're doing fine. Just keep with it.

I'm blogging, but about NaNoWriMo, so it doesn't take me very long. Also, I don't proofread my blog posts :)

Go for it! I am in awe of anyone who even attempts to write a novel.

You might get writing inspiration while taking long, brisk walks, the oxygen pumping thru your brain and all that.

I can't speak for others but I write most of my blogs in advance and set them to post...like little time bombs waiting to go off. I spent most of the last two weeks of October writing blogs and stockpiling them in preparation.

Go Yankee Girl goooooooooooooooo!

:)

And when you are done - you can post it in a blog (or maybe one per chapter?)

I once wrote a book... I did all the page numbers... and then I got bored. :)

Ah, it is not easy. It is so damn hard. Did I mention that it is not easy?
I don't like pressure, deadlines, and all that must do things. I write whenever I feel like it,.. now I have to write. Every day. I don't find it fabulous. At all. But I have told myself that I can still complete, even if I would type that last word on the last day of this year.
Good luck to you! Looking forward to reading your novel.
