First world struggle no.1

Nanowrimo has been a slog for me. Who knows how those peeps write their 50k in five days or so. I have been writing upwards of 1500 words a day this whole month and it’s really hard. I would love to lock those people in a room and observe them and see if they really do write 50k in the month. I am going to learn to plan because flying by the seat of your pants is a bit stressful. I mean first world struggle… I am about 1300 words short. I feel like I just can’t be bothered but even as I write this, I know I will push through the resistance. I’ve been blogging all month too so I have more than covered the word count but it’s not technically right to include that. I’m writing this on my phone because my computer is having a fit. But I’m persevering. In the few minutes it’s taken me to write this, I’ve realised how desperate I am to finish my 50k! As soon as I convince this computer to start.

NEWS FLASH!!!!!!!!!!!! I did it!!!! I put my trusty writing playlist on and smashed it out. And now I want to put it away and not look at it until, i don’t know, May…
