Well…

At least I can say that after I posted my last word count on Day 15, I did reach 25k before midnight like I wanted.

I was right on point at that halfway mark of NaNoWriMo’s and could say that I drafted a (long) complete short story.

I was left with two choices – start tackling the Part 2 of “Living To Die” for real or draft another (long) short story I had in mind. I decided on another short story but then I started going through my little purple notebook of ideas/potential titles and couldn’t make a decision…Ain’t Too Proud To Beg, Hotter Than Hell, It Should Have Been Us

To clear my mind, I did what I usually do when I’m at a crossroads – I decided to clean and organize.

Call me weird but a clean and organized space gives me such a zen buzz that it is usually my go-to coping mechanism. But there was one major problem – I started cleaning my home office and it didn’t stop there…

So instead of “writing” as part of my Miracle Morning ritual, I’ve been on a “deep cleaning” bender since last word count and still haven’t written any new words towards my second NaNoWriMo project.

Mind you, I have been writing blog posts and some anecdotal/creative non-fiction pieces but I’m choosing to not take those words into account because they weren’t part of my original word plan…at least not just yet.

EXPECTED DAY 22 WORD COUNT? 36,674

MY WORD COUNT? 25, 500 + …

Tell me, how has your NaNoWriMo writing been going this week?

M xoxo

  1. Hi Marquessa! It is great to find a coping, creative ritual at this time during the challenge. Organizing spaces is definitely fun at times. I find it nice to work on blog posts as well to add writing variety to my life. I am currently at 40K and trying to chug along, but holidays and work is slowing my progress. Keep at it though!πŸ˜‰
