I’m just not having the best of luck this week. I mean, I know that there are people out there who are having a worse week than me, but I have three tests tomorrow and I’m freaking out a little bit inside. I know I shouldn’t be writing this and that I should be studying, but I fell back asleep this morning so I didn’t write this yet. I know, I suck at keeping up with things.
Tuesdays are the new Mondays.
I’m currently at around 72,000 words, which I’m very proud of, but I’m scared I won’t finish my novel before the end of NaNoWriMo. Well, finish the first draft, anyway.
I’m currently at a part where my character wants to do something and I have to figure out what obstacle to throw in her way to keep her from doing that. And let me tell you, writing buddies help. They come up with all sorts of ideas and advice and you can help them too. Writing buddies are the greatest.
This is going to be a short post, so that’s my challenge for you! Find another writer and just talk about your work. Become friends. Yes, I know, we are writers and that means we hide inside our houses, but sometimes it pays off to make friends. Like, IRL.
And if you don’t know how to find another writer, try over the internet. There are tons of people on NaNoWriMo who would love to be a writing buddy! Start there!
I post a new NaNoWriMo update every week day on this blog. Like this post if you liked it, and you can follow my website via email, WordPress, or any of the social media widgets on the side. If you are reading this on Goodreads, then you can follow me or add me as a friend!
Also, for one day of NaNoWriMo I will do a Q&A about me, my work, or NaNoWriMo, so if you have questions then comment below or on the Q&A page.
Thanks everyone for reading!
