It’s day 27 and I’m finally back on schedule.
I know I haven’t posted much this month, but I haven’t had a great month.
For starters, I still have no internet at my house.
I also had a death in the family, which lead to a great deal of travel over four days.
I’m currently sitting at around 43,000 in words. I have 3 days.
I can do this.
Anyone who is doing NaNo and honestly, isn’t much more than 15k behind, can probably do this. I’ve never been able to pull up if I’m more than 15k behind.
Though, I have seen it done.
My name is Adrienne, and I am a writer.
I’ve got this.
I’ve got this more than I had my nerves settled when I did the radio interview.
It’s about the space saga. It’s also the first time you officially hear a title.
You can tell I’m mildly freaked out by how squeaky my voice is.
Okay, mildly freaked out is not the right phrase there. I was petrified.
Shit happens though. It never fails to happen during november to me and my family. November and April, the original two OLL months of the year.
I also had a day about a week ago where I spent more of the day doing hard reboots with my laptop than I did anything else. Talk about not fun.
Last week, I had 3 blue screens over the course of two days.
(I run windows on this computer, fyi).
This was followed by a day where I did 9 hard reboots.
Here’s to hoping that I can get the job I applied for this past weekend, so that I don’t have to worry about money anymore. *holds up wine glass*
If I get the job, my take home dollars nearly triple.
That means I can pay off debt and start saving for a house.
Seriously, it would be so freaking amazing. So, positive thoughts my way, please.
So, I’ve indicated a writing tip can be found in this post, so here it is:
No matter what, don’t stop writing.
It may not have anything to do with your current main project, but it will have value.
That value is keeping your ass in the seat. Keeping your fingers moving.
The minute you stop, the minute you say, I don’t have time today, is the day you stop writing and it takes a long time to get back into the groove. Trust me. I have been there more times that I care to admit to. I have had years in the past where I didn’t write a damn thing. Those years felt terrible. I felt boring and worthless. I am neither.
GET OFF YOUR MENTAL ASS AND GET THOSE FINGERS MOVING.
