After feeling the pressure for those few days that I couldn’t write many words. I re-connected with a someone from my writer’s group. We talked for a bit about our pieces we are doing for NaNo. I showed her what I had so far, she loved it!
Which help to motivated me to keep going with it. I had planned to do some writing once I got off of work but that didn’t happened as I got caught up watching a video about this puppet called Manu.
It wasn’t until I realized how late it was that I heard my muse whispering into the my ear about a back story. A story based on the parents of the main character which I felt compelled to type up that moment.
I type up as much as I could in that sit before I went off to the bed. I am not in it to win although someone would say I am not aim big enough. But for this is big enough consider the months that I went without writing a single word whether it be in my journal or story writing. I got wonderful advice from one of my favorite podcasters Sarah Werner and her 30 tips for 30 days of NaNo
I am not win NaNo this year but at least I made the attempt to participate and do the best I know how to do at this point in my life.
