This time last year, I was in love with writing and NaNo and writing all kinds of cool and funny stuff.
This year is the complete opposite. I want November to be over, because I don’t really have an interest in working on anything new. It’s a weird feeling for me, because I always look foward to NaNo, and I hate that this year, I’m struggling to muster up some feeling and energy.
As much as I love the roller derby idea, I think I might shelve until next year and do a rewrite. Or write a little for each day, but spend most of my energy on something else.
I definitely feel the need to work on a few of my “old” writing projects and I might, but I don’t think I’ll include them in my word count. I feel like I shouldn’t include anything that’s from an old project, so I’m at a crossroad. It is all on the honor system, and I want to honor the honor system and work on brand new things for NaNo! Not work on old stuff because I don’t feel like writing anything new.
I could always piece it together by writing random stuff, like I did back in July when my NCIS fanfic didn’t work out.
Speaking of fanfiction, though, I am feeling the need to write something Harry Potter related, which crossed my mind over a week ago. I should have gone with that…but I did start up a harry potter fanfic yesterday. That’s the most inspired I’ve been all month but I have no clue what it’s about, other than Hermione and Seamus live in the same apartment building, she’s not dating Ron and doesn’t really talk to Harry and the Weasley’s, except for George. This should be interesting, and it couldn’t be any more vague.
Since I have a few different novels now, I think I’m just going to do a general update on everything, and maybe mention individual projects that I’m working on.
My grand total for the month is 32,782 words, so I’m still off pace, but I’m also feeling confident I can catch up. Words will come, they always do! I suppose that’s it for today, so I should get some writing done.
