Friends, I've not deserted you. I'm heavily investing my time in NaNoWriMo as discussed in the previous post. Its been tough. However, I've created a character who is leading me through the story and making things happen. I'm purely recording them on her behalf, and while she tries to make some sense of what is going on around her I'm taking notes for later.
Most of the time, I'm bone tired. I did the challenge last year, so I knew what to expect. I'll admit, I don't find it easy, I know some of you do, and I envy you! Anyway, I'm still cooking for the family, running the house, although its a bit wobbly, here and there. I'm shopping, and going to work each day.
Throw in several appointments at the dentist, hospital and my daughters school for parents evening, and it doesn't leave a whole lot of time for writing. Surprisingly though, I've managed to still get to yoga, go out for a few social events during the evenings, and at the weekend I've had 'me' time at the pool, and still found time to write the 1667 words a day required. Well, maybe I didn't manage the word count on two of those days, but I have caught them up again now.
What I'm trying to say is, I've had all the stuff going on in real life, yet fingers crossed I'm here on day 20, with 35,000 words written. Which means I have 15,000 to go. I'm over the other side of the hill. The hill that seemed like a mountain back on day one.
