One Week Down

I intended on posting this yesterday, but I got busy and forgot. It sucks, not having time for the blog. I miss my blog, my followers, and the blogs I follow. NaNo is helping pull me out of my funk completely though. I'm writing, getting back to critiquing, and even doing better finding time just to read. Which means soon I'll be back to blogging more and reading blogs. Yay. :)

One week of NaNoWriMo gone and my total word count is 16,524. I'm slightly ahead, which is good because last night I fell asleep before I got any writing in. If I didn't have that cushion, I'd be disappointed, but I do, so it's all good. I'll be writing today and with any luck, maybe I'll gain even more cushion.

It took too long to come out of my funk and I'm still on the border of falling back into it and not. I don't want to be there again. Not writing wasn't good for me. The more I didn't write, or critique, or read, the more I couldn't motivate myself to do any of it. I don't like that place and I'm glad you all stuck with me. Everyone gave me good words of encouragement and you made me feel better, thank you. I have some pretty amazing online friends, you all rock.

Last thing, I realized that I forgot about the Insecure Writers Support Group, so let's call this update post, my IWSG post for this month. Better late than not at all.

I hope you all have an AWESOME weekend. :)

How about you...Are you writing? Revising/editing? Doing NaNo? What's going on in your life these days?

Glad you're keeping ahead. Sounded like a good IWSG post to me!

NaNo is taking a lot out of me, AND IT IS SO WEIRD BECAUSE I FELL ASLEEP YESTERDAY WITHOUT WRITING AS WELL! I didn't have too much of a cushion though so I've been trying to catch up all of today. Sigh. We'll get through it together.

I had a hard time shifting from revising to jumping into NaNo and something totally new. Your word count looks great. I day at a time, I always tell myself, and most times it works. You can do it!

Not in NaNoWriMo - I chickened out. But am working on a new WIP with a goal to be written, edited, query/synopsis written and in the trenches no later than Feb 1.

Currently critiquing six different books for others. Stopped revising - it was depressing me and I lost my MoJo. So I found a pic and he is permanently on the desktop LOL!
