So it’s November 6th, and I am already behind in writing my Nano-novel. When I joined Nanowrimo, I had a new business with no clients and 15 hours a week as a virtual assistant. 50,000 words would be a breeze. Then, during the last two weeks of October, I acquired more business…and then some more. Not that I am complaining. It is easier to write with food, shelter, and clothing. But it is November 6th, and by now I should have 10,000 words written. I do not.
I am not quitting. I have a “thing” about deadlines and being perfect. This will be good for me. I’m the woman who does. not.cheat. on her diet…until she does. And then because it caused her to gain a pound she wants to throw up her hands. I took piano lessons and was fairly gifted for my age, but then the really hard music came out….
I am going to finish this. Because I can, and because it is a really great story, and because it is less stressful than digging up that old Chopin book, especially since I don;t have a piano handy.
Besides, I cheated on my diet on Halloween, and I didn’t give up. I’m on a roll.
