A Quick NaNoWriMo Update

This is a quick, very quick post; I should be focusing on increasing my word count because writing time is limited today but a quick update is needed. It is a week since I began to work with Megg and six days NaNoWriMo started and a miracle has happened — I am on target!

Day 5 words
I have words!

Some days have been harder than others. It seemed an impossible task on day three, after sleep won over my early morning writing routine and feeling ill but with the knowledge Megg was behind me words were written. How many of the those words will stay after editing? Not many but they have moved the story forward.

I predict today and tomorrow will be a struggle too with hospital visits and tests and I also fell into the trap of research this morning but with a site like the Tea of Life and writing about a tea obsessed witch who can blame me? Just don’t tell Megg

I need to stop procrastinating and write.

How is everyone else doing?

Happy writing!

No Excuses No More Procrastination with NaNo Coaching

Oh bloody hell! I have won NaNo Coaching with the lovely Megg Geri, the author of the inspiring How to Write A Novel in 30 Days.

When I read about Megg’s NaNo coaching I looked longingly at my bank balance in the hope it would stretch beyond paying the bills. When the opportunity arose to enter a giveaway for a place, I had to try and now, if I could I would be doing cartwheels. My stomach is full of excited butterflies, my mind is whizzing with excitement and eager to write but part of me is overwhelmingly scared of the challenge ahead.

It is time to face the fear and do it anyway as they say and with Megg behind me to give me a kick when I need it who knows how far I can fly. *

Watch this space.

Happy writing and last minute prepping for NaNoWriMo

 

*if I can get over 15,000 words I will be happy, 20,000 estastic, and anything over 25,0000 I will faint with shock.

No longer aspiring to be a writer

I have recently read a post by Lucy V Hay on Bang2Write blog titled Why You Should Stop Calling Yourself an Aspiring Writer It resonated with me deeply because I am guilty of this. In all my bios and when I talk to people, I always say “I’m an aspiring writer.” Never the words “I am a writer.” But today in time for NaNoWriMo and Samhain, where it is time to let go of things you no longer need,  these words are gone.

Words to remember

I may not be published; my current manuscript is unfinished and a fledgling one starts in two days time but I have improved since I published my first post here. Writing has become my all-consuming thought whether words are written or not. Therefore, I am a writer.

Happy writing!
