Randomness to get me through Nanowrimo:
1. “Don’t worry”, ranks up there right next to “calm down”. Some people… Oh and no worries, I am not worried or need to calm down, just something heard on my commute to work today. I felt like sharing an eye roll with the woman being given such great advice, but I try not to make eye contact with strangers.
2. I want to read all the time. Even this month where most of my spare time (ha, spare time, as if) goes to writing for nano, I want to read. I make deals with myself that if I only get my word count in for the day in the morning, I could have some time to read at night. Or, the one that kinda messes me up and gets me in trouble: If I read for an hour now, I have to spend at least an hour writing later. Oh that one is too funny, as I will crack open the book and any time I had is spent lost in the fiction of that story. I’ve just wasted the day for writing. It’s a problem.
3. Reviews. I need reviews for my books. I assume other authors do as well, yet, I’m really lazy and will only do the star part of the review. I hardly ever write an actual review. I’m a hypocrite. I admit it.
4. I am currently on word count at 4200 words. Granted that is only for the first two days of nano, but I have set aside one hour tonight at 9:30 p.m. to get my 2000 words in today and hopefully all week long. We will see how well I do. I get cranky and tired by the time Thursday and Friday hit. Maybe I should start drinking soda again, just for nano. It’s a thought…
