All around Twitter and throughout the blogverse, NaNoWriMo has taken over. I’m guilty. Right now I’m feeling relief, but earlier I was caught between an odd anxiousness and a kind of mild panic.
I was unable to write this morning, waiting for a delivery and then going out for an appointment. The crucible was since NaNo began I wrote in the morning. Now, I am NOT a morning person but the time between 9am and noon was working just fine. That plan exploded to smithereens today.
By the time I returned from my appointment, faced a phone call, finally got the delivery (late), it was early afternoon and I hadn’t created more than a couple hundred words. That’s when the aforementioned anxiousness and panic crept up on me. (How those of you do it with children and car pools and such has my complete respect!)
Fortunately, silence and determination won the day and after 1883 more words, my NaNo total pushed into double digits (11,080) and I am feeling better. Like Harry Potter and his Marauder’s Map, my NaNoWriMo map closes with a hard won tip for this day: Be Flexible.
Tap. Tap. Tap. Lesson Learned!
