I’m exhausted–but there’s a reason! In the last two months, I’ve written two first drafts!
My basketball story–which totally needs a title–is complete. In five weeks, I cranked out a 79,800 word story, and boy do I love this one.
My “lucky” story–which is tentatively titled PUSHING MY LUCK–is 88% done, and sitting comfortably at 56,000 words.
NaNoWriMo took a toll on me this year, but I had help with a co-ML, and without her, I don’t know if I would’ve made it.But I did! I was a survivor and also a NaNoWrimo Winner. Now, I just need to write the end to that story, but with the holiday’s its been tougher than ever to sit down to write. In fact, I haven’t written much at all over the last few weeks.
I’m finding that is the case with lots of my writing friends. They take this season “off.” Lots of agents slow down, too, as they close down to queries.
So, if you’re writing journey slows down, consider yourself normal. If you find now is the best time for you to hunker down and hammer out those words, then consider yourself a step ahead for the New Year.
Until next time,
