Day 3


Today hasn’t been a great writing day for me, but I’ve persevered. And that’s the thing–no matter what if you start writing then you’ll keep writing. One word at a time. AND, that has been my day in regard to writing today. I had to literally sit myself down at the computer armed with a large cup of coffee, my cigarettes (I know it’s a horrible habit), and just make myself write the first word.

start writing no matter what

My husband left to go back on the road this evening and I wanted to spend as much time with him as possible. After he left I felt a bit down. :(. I wanted a nap. I didn’t take one. I wanted to curl up in the recliner and watch some mind candy on the television. I didn’t. Instead I looked at some pics of the hubby, the grandbaby, and then finally just wrote. Now I’m taking a short break so I can write my post for today for NaBloPoMo and then I’m off to continue writing for NaNoWriMo.

Writing on a bad day

What I really want to do is crawl into bed and go to sleep watching something on Netflix, but I have “miles to go before I sleep.” I think what helped me today was that my husband is so supportive of my writing. He doesn’t think I’m crazy for participating in NaNoWriMo or NaBloPoMo. He commends me and motivates me to fulfill my dream of one day publishing a novel. “You can do it, baby. I believe in you.”

one word after another

So I’m here at my computer putting one word at a time down, until the words become sentences, and then the sentences become paragraphs…leading into chapters, and then into a novel. And after I’ve written for at least another hour (I break my time up usually. A solid hour of writing then a fifteen minute break. Then another solid hour of writing…), I’ll have a glass of water and then crash early and tomorrow, day 4, will be a much better day.
