Ugh, my WordPress screen is different. I hate it.
I don’t know if I’m going to finish this book tomorrow. It’s doubtful. My total for the NaNoWriMo 2012 is only 23,522 words altogether. But the book is almost finished, and so I consider it a success. That’s what I wanted NaNo to do for me this year.
I’m not making excuses, but it’s very hard for me to write when I don’t have other stuff going on. For most people, that would be heaven. For me, it sucks. Not having a job means that instead of thinking about writing, I’m thinking about not having a job, what’s going to happen if I can’t find one, where I should look next, etc. etc. ad infinitum forever and ever. Makes it really hard to concentrate on anything else except all the things that are making me miserable.
I’m going to try and finish the book before the holiday gets here. Then I’m going to sit on it for a while, maybe a couple of weeks, before I begin rewriting. By NaNoEdMo in March, I hope to have at least a second or third draft done.
Here’s a guy who didn’t think his strategy through very well. WARNING: Spider, but you can barely see it so it’s not very scary.
