With all that’s going on, my schedule is crazy. Yeah, i know, so is everyone’s right. Well, agreed, but with the added pressure of work, long commute and doing chores on the weekend, I’ve added even more to plate.
NaNoWriMo is a challenge. Staring November first, I began to try and bang out a novel of 50,000 words in one month. So did a lot of people, but I’m going to do it if it kills me. Right now, I’ve only made a dent at 12,800 words, give or take. However, I have a couple of weekends and the holidays in the mix. Originally, I wanted to work on it at night, but after 12 hour days, I just run out of steam. So, the 12K words I’ve done so far, have been banged out on the bus, lunch and when I can sneak in a few minutes before crashing for the night.
The good news, I spent the weeks prior to this month working on characters, plot lines, premise, scenes and building the step sheet. So, my writing time isn’t spent trying to figure out what to write, just how to write the scenes, what to bring out and what to explore.
So far, it’s working pretty well, if I could just find the time.
Crazy schedule and all!
