NaNoWriMo 2017

As it’s the first day of National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo for short, my goal this month is to work on my novel every day.

Because honestly, I started writing this in 11 grade, and I need to finish it, because I want to see it – and its sequels – published.  Preferably sometime in the near future.

Last year was my first year participating in NaNoWriMo.  I figured it would be a good way to keep me on track towards finishing my novel.  It worked – for awhile.  At some point, I lost my momentum.   I could attribute it to the fact that I was busy with school because November is crunch time before Fall semester finals, but that wasn’t the only reason I fell behind.  I felt like I was running out of ideas.  My creativity was stalled.  It was a major writers block.

And yes, writer’s block is a thing.  At least for me.  My imagination isn’t an on-demand thing.  Inspiration comes to me randomly; I need to get better at writing my ideas down.

The good thing is, I’m not busy with school at the moment.  I’ll have more of a routine, as I started a job yesterday.  And blogging every day is still a goal for me.  So hopefully inspiration and my imagination won’t elude me.  But I don’t think it will.  I can do this.
