My Record Holds!

So for about the third year in a row where I have decided to do NaNoWriMo I am a few days in and have nothing written! At least I am consistent. Now I just have to get my butt in gear.

The big problem that I have with writing, is getting myself to actually start. It’s why blog posts are late, or non existent, and it’s why I sit there and stare at my screen for hours trying to figure out exactly where the screen came from. Trust me, there are only so many ways you can look at the screen of a chromebook trying to figure out how all the information fits on that tiny screen.

From time to time I actually take out the good old stand by of pen and paper, but it takes so much longer to get any writing done that way that I just can’t stand to use it for long stories any more. Though it does make it easier to create, so I often use it to brain storm.

Actually, now that I think about it, I shall grab my notebook and get to work.

Getting Ready for Nanowrimo

For the last five years or so I have attemptedĀ and failed to participate in National Novel Writing Month. I say failed only because I can never get to the 50k word count that they are looking for. It’s not even a ridiculous goal, I just get distracted half way through the month and end up doing pretty much anything else.

This year I have a lot more riding on it. This year the hope is to actually be able to get a novel done, as rough a draft as it may be, so that I can build off of it. It is also going to be used to get my mind out of the writer’s block that seems to have persisted a lot longer than I would like.

So that’s the goal for this year: Kill the writer’s block. Anyone else in?
