I always find the start of the first week of nano easy. You’re excited, you can’t wait to start this project, you haven’t had a chance to encounter any set backs yet. But then as the first week winds down, you start to get frustrated. Maybe you haven’t had as much time as you’d hoped to devote to writing. Maybe the story is just not flowing like you wanted it to. Maybe the plot has changed completely from what you initially outlined.
Don’t get discouraged! Keep writing! The best thing you can do during set backs is to push through them!
So I want to know how everyone is doing? Are you on track? Have you fallen behind? Are you ahead of the game?
As for me, I’m still behind. 12-hour work days are difficult and squeezing in writing during the work day has proved to be harder than I thought. But the good news is I plan to make up my writing goals this weekend. And my work project ends tonight, so I’ll have much more free time! So even though I’m behind, I’m looking forward to leveling out my progress and getting back on track.
Stick with it! And don’t forget to check in tomorrow at Elle’s blog: http://ellestraussbooks.blogspot.com
