NaNoWriMo Day 13/14 (Chocolate! No free time! 10,000 words!)

A couple days ago I passed 10,000 words. I think I’ve probably eaten roughly 10,000 grams of chocolate too, and I’m ok with that. When you do NaNoWriMo the whole month of November takes on a surreal quality. You really have to wrestle to find the time not only to write, but to have a spare moment to yourself. The original title of this blog was NaNoWriMo Day 14, if you want to know just how occupied I’ve been. I’m trying to keep on top of the things that are most important to me (writing, loved ones, health) but from time to time something falls by the wayside.

It’s easy to focus on the things you haven’t done, many of us have no trouble shining the spotlight on our perceived failings. But life isn’t a to-do list, and you do the best you can. If you’re participating in NaNoWriMo, I would suggest you let yourself have this month. It’s a finite amount of time, to do something you must love a whole lot. It’s ok to make it a priority. It’s also ok to take the evening off to watch netflix or simply stare into spare. Do what you’ve gotta do.

As for me, I’m feeling pretty determined. And hungry for chocolate.
