Greetings. I missed last week. I guess I just forgot. But since this is my blog I’m probably not going to get kicked off. 😉 We just started (full) week two of NaNoWriMo. I had this idea in my head that I was having a lot of trouble this year. That it was so much easier last year. But then I found a post on one of my personal blogs called NaNoWri…No. It was fairly early on last year when I wrote that post but it shows me that I’d forgotten how much I regretted getting into this literary mess last year too, lol.
Much like childbirth, I seem to have forgotten the pain involved in the last time one of these things came out. In a way it helps to see that it wasn’t as rosy as I seem to remember it being the last time around. I am now ten days in and have just managed to start to understand my characters and their real motivations, as opposed to the ones they immediately put forth to strangers and the like. And hey, it only took me fifteen thousand words. A mere pittance.
Next year I swear I’m going to remember that this is never easy, no matter how rosy it seemed last time.
