Today I am going back to work and I am not sure how I will manage.

I write for #NaNoWriMo with Google’s Drive which gives me the possibility to write with my mobile as well. It also has a word count tool which is quite handy for #NaNo. I wrote in one of my last posts that I can even write offline which helps me at work as there is no good internet connection there.

So I have everything in place to use my breaks at work to get on with #NaNo. Still I feel like I have missed a chance to get on with #NaNoWriMo early meaning I am behind in the word count even though I had planned to be ahead to not have to write so much when I work.

But well I make up problems I suppose. I have realised I can write quite a lot and get on with it if I set my mind to it. My stats tell me that I would finish at the 3. December if I go on in my actual pace which is not too bad I think.

BUT I also realised the closer I come to the end of November the more it counts if I can’t make the word count. So no pressure at all 😉

I got up early so I have some time left to get writing and that I better do now :-)!

Good luck to you all and thanks for your feedback and support so far. May you have a wonderful and successful #NaNoWriMo!

 

 

Been better…

…. is a song from Kyla La Grange a singer I have recently discovered.

In the song it says: ” Been better when the sky was red and a face like yours didn’t make me scared…. Been better when I took the lead instead of being lead….”

I love that song just for those lines. Yes it is better to take the lead of our lives instead of being lead. Well, it depends on your personality I suppose. For me it is a bit of both. Sometimes I like to give up all responsibility and just being lead but most of the time I would rather lead myself.

In the last few weeks I have lead. I have managed so far to pre-write all my blogs for next week and for November in preparation for my holiday and NaNoWriMo. That is amazing and I am pretty proud.

Have been neglecting my story a bit though but there are still nearly two weeks left to work on that and with the blogs out of my way I feel free to concentrate on them.

There is also some anxiety: Can I manage to write so much each day? Will I give up? Have a I taken on too much?

I keep reminding myself that NaNoWriMo is not intended to for us to write a super finished novel. It is supposed to be a first draft and then you can work on it and make a fine finish of it if you want to.

Am still excited. Am excited about concentrating on writing a novel. Am excited to have a holiday and I am excited about my novel.

Wow I have never been better :-)!
