Well, here it is, Friday again: back to work this afternoon after three days off. Time flies when you’re having fun.
I’m beginning to wonder if I should rethink this challenge. January was easy and February wasn’t too bad until I got that miserable cold that was making the rounds, but I haven’t been able to get rolling as much this month.
Of course, it didn’t help that the cold came back and turned into a sinus infection. (I broke down and went to the doctor : the antibiotics kicked in and I’m feeling much better now.)
I think it’s more than that, though. It almost feels like I’m starting to burn out already.
I’m not quitting (I’m too stubborn to give up) but I need to do something – I seem to be losing focus.
I just had three days off, and am still barely on track for word count.
Maybe having all day to write isn’t a good thing. I tend to put it off, thinking I have lots of time, and before I know it, it’s midnight and I haven’t written a single word. (Christmas sneaks up on me the same way.)
Or maybe I need to cut some distractions. Take a notebook and go to the library and handwrite for an hour or two and then come home and type it up. Or even take a notebook and just go where my computer isn’t.
Whatever the problem is, I need to find a cure for it – and soon.
April is less than two weeks away, and April is Camp NaNoWriMo which means I’ll be aiming for two thousand words a day. (My official goal will be 50,000 words, but why not push it, hmmm?)
And April is also NaPoWriMo, which means that I’ll also be writing a poem a day all month.
So, yeah, I really need to find a cure for this non-writing thing.
Too bad I can’t just go to a doctor and get a prescription.
Or at least a diagnosis.
