Nano can be a grueling, exhausting, and exhiliarating experience--and I hate it. Sometimes.
I signed up last minute and regretted it almost immediately. I do not like to NOT finish something. But, I don't think I will finish Nano.
I had a million internal reasons to not finish: it is a terrible month to start Nano--why not summer? Who chose November? It is a waste of time--the writing is forced. To busy, too tired, too whatever.
So I looked up authors who write everyday. Seems Roald Dahl did it, Stephen King does it, and many others feel it is the thing to do.
Why does it suddenly feel very hard to write for two hours?
I see people who have already written 30, 35, 40,000 words--and I am happy for them, but uninspired. And aggravated.
But I am still in it and my competative nature is rearing its ugly head so I had better get writing. Wish me luck...
