It’s my anniversary with WordPress! One year ago today I wrote my first post for this blog. Like this post will be, it was all about Nanowrimo. Back then I was so afraid I wouldn’t succeed in reaching 50,000 words in thirty days. I’m nervous this time but I’m in a completely different situation. We’ll see what happens.
I went to the last-minute planning/kick off event for my region on Halloween. I’m normally asleep by 11pm so it was a bit of a struggle but I managed to start writing at midnight and got the first scene out ending up with 718 words in about half an hour before I gave in to the sleepies. When I got up in the morning. I was miserable. My back hurt. I felt weird. I was starving and a little light-headed. Eating solved most of the problems and muscle relaxers and Naproxen helped with the rest. I felt a little off for most of the day but eventually took a twenty-minute nap and it made all the difference. Plus the ice cream my awesome husband went and picked up for me helped me feel better.
I didn’t start writing again until late afternoon but once I did I got lost in it. Before I knew it I had blown past my daily goal and I stopped contemplating giving up. I wouldn’t have actually given up, but pain does weird stuff to your head, or maybe it’s just me haha. Since I did well I didn’t have to feel guilty when I sat in the living room and watched a show.
So now I’ve started November off well and I’m looking forward to getting more writing done today. Wish me luck, I suspect I’ll desperately need it!
