Nano - Ten Days In
I was so excited leading up to November, having been thinking about my story since last year's failed Nano. I had a playlist, I had characters and I knew where I wanted to start and how I wanted to end. But can I write? It's just not happening! I don't if it's because I'm good at visualising and maybe not so good at translating that vision to paper, but ouch, it's driving me nuts. I won't even say my word count because it's pretty embarrassing (and the counter on my profile hasn't been updated), but I'm nowhere near the target of 50,000. Argh!!!
Anyway, I'm still hopeful and determined to not throw in the towel yet - I still have a few free weekends and I think if I get my srs bsns writing face on and keep creeping along (I'm currently writing a lot of filler stuff for the story - like emails and IM conversations), maybe it will come along?
How is everyone else going? Is your writing moving along as you hoped it would, or are you well and truly stuck? I'd love to hear how other people are progressing (please let me live vicariously through your successful writerly pursuits). Alternatively, do you have any tips or tricks for strugglers like me? Help a gal out!
