Election stress has affected my attention span, but I’m getting caught up. I’m working on a project that started as an idea while I read Halloween books to my daughter. I’m trying something new (for me), which is writing even scenes I know will probably be deleted in future drafts, carrying on even when I’ve done something I know needs to be changed, really embracing “write now, fix it later,” and it’s more fun and less stressful than I expected.
I’m doing NaNoWriMo this year, but since I’m not great at following rules, I’m working on short stories. I still have the 50,000 word goal, I’m just drafting as many stories as I can of ideas that I haven’t gotten around to writing. I’m still optimistic on Day Two, so that’s something. Are you doing NaNoWriMo? What are you working on?
I hit 10,000 words today, woohoo!
