NaNoWriMo

So yes, I AM doing NaNoWriMo again this year, for those of you who need a refresher, here is my intro post from last year.

Life has been crazy busy. We recently bought a new house, and have been moving. Work wise, we lost two people 4 months ago and that means 2 of us have doubled our workload for the last few months. I'm taking a writing class from Mike Stackpole on Thursdays, plus add onto that the kids and their new Prep school where we're doing more homework per night than I did in college, and yeah. I'm busy.

So how am I going to fit in NaNoWriMo?

I'm just going to do it. When work ends, I turn off one computer and start up another one. I'm going to sit in my chair, maybe pop a Dr Pepper and start spewing words on a page. I'm doing it because I have to. Other than the few thousand words I've written for this class, I haven't done any writing in the last few months, and it's been bothering me. I need to get back in the game, get back up to my normal production rate, and, well WRITE!

Yesterday was painful. Only 500 words out of the 1667 that I needed, but I'll get there. Starting is rough after you haven't been in the habit for a while.

So here is to making a crazy year and a crazy holiday time even more crazy. But I have to do it. I must write.
