I must be crazy…

crazyAn entire month devoted to writing with everything else going on in my life? What am I getting myself into?

I’m sure every NaNo writer must have these panic attacks the day before it begins but I’m seriously questioning my sanity.

I have a full-time job with an eighty-mile round trip commute, three very high maintenance kids and a husband that also has a full-time job and commute. I guess if in a month I’m separated and my kids are failing out of school and hate me then I won’t be able to question why.

It’s masochistic, crazy, freaking nightmarishly insane!

  1. I was doing the same thing to myself yesterday. I thought, “this is so stupid, why am I even doing this?” But today I feel much more excited. I am going to a Write In this afternoon and I am hoping to get inspired!

  2. I feel better today too. My house is almost quiet and I’ve already finished my first chapter.
    It’s so funny how things just start coming as you write. Sometimes I feel like my brain has split personality disorder. I feel like–where on earth did that come from?!?

    1. I think we all have a little multiple personality disorder. How else could we come up with such a versatile range of characters.

      And oh yeah, we are all a little crazy, but who cares!

  3. More than a little crazy, I’d say. I am totally with you on the — where on earth did that come from?!?! spectrum.

    I started writing today and ended up with characters I’ve never met before. Fun though.

  4. Darksculptures informed me that you reached over 5,000 words in your NaNoWriMo novel yesterday.

    You go, girl! You’re flaming along like nobody’s business.

    Keep up the good work.

    I’ve added your blog to my favorites list so I can keep in touch. I embrace my craziness; it’s the only way to go!

    1. Thanks! I’ll add you too. I have to write non-stop on the weekends since I don’t have any down time during the week. The real trick will be keeping up with the story with so little writing time during the week.
