I received such a wonderful response to my post titled Confessions of a NaNoWriMo Slacker that this morning I decided to grab the bull by the horns and sit myself down in front of the computer and not stop until I got to 20,000 words. I did it. I wrote 9,900 words today, I have to admit that I am a little cross-eyed right now and my brain feels a little fuzzy, I think that my brain overheated a bit today. However I do feel good about plowing through writing today.
I was initially going to title this post Walk and Write, Walk and Write because essentially that is all I did today; I walked Jack and then sat down and wrote, walked Jack, sat down and wrote and then I walked Jack again. I did this pattern until I got to 20,000 words. It wasn’t difficult per se, the story is unfolding nicely and I love my characters. That being said, it is challenging to sit down for hours at a stretch and type word after descriptive word.
As I was walking Jack, it came to me that I had to title this post in honor of my readers who provided me with the support and the proverbial kick in the bottom to stop complaining and sit down to write. Not question, not analyze, not procrastinate and as in the words of the wise Yoda, no try just do.
So thank you all of my readers for helping me in my hour of need. I really appreciate it. 🙂
