Meeting is now called to order… Or should we wait another 5 minutes. I think 5 minutes isn’t long enough… or is it?
Anyway, while we wait, I have something I want to discuss, at least I think I do. I seem to have a problem. I can’t seem to get motivated enough to write. I have been confined to barracks, signed up for Nano, but I don’t want to write. Actually, I do want to write, but i guess because it is 50k, I am a little nervous.
This year, I have written three stories, one at 19k, one at 35k and one at 25k. So 50k seems like an astronomical number to reach. And considering it is the 6th today (while I am writing this) and only 1k done, I am definitely behind the 8 ball!
My story is quite exciting really, and I have already decided to change the beginning of the story, which means the beginning is now about half way through where I wanted my story to start. And now I have to make up more of the story to get to 50k, but I don’t want to pad it out.
To go along with that, I have a crook ankle – aka ugly foot. Hence confined to barracks. I fell a few weeks ago and damaged the ligament on the top of my foot and bruised the one going down from my ankle. I have since fallen again and the ankle is twice the size it was and I am on crutches. It hurts – no matter what I do with it.
I am so tired, physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually and I am wondering if my higher power is letting me know that I need to rest. I wish he would also give me the will to write and write and write.
So, I will attempt to finish my latest novella and start working on my NaNo novel.
Wish me luck… or don’t, depending on where you are at with your own procrastination.
