I'VE GOT PMS

Pre-mental suffering!
I know every day
For the remainder of November
I have to write 2K a day. 
It's agonizing!
So?
I wonder how all the other NaNoWriMo writers are doing.
I’m keeping up with my daily word count.
My goal is 50K by the end of November.
I’m amazed with myself for several reasons.
Especially the discipline
Because…
I now officially know I have AADD.
I"ll write about 300 words…
When suddenly…
I get an itchy urge…
(which has nothing to do with dry skin)
To find something to distract me…
Like cleaning my keyboard…
Obsessing with my cuticles…
Or researching the Kymaro body shaper.
But I stay seated…
I plow through all the naggy thoughts…
By envisioning hundreds…
Probably even thousands…
Of other writers forcing themselves to write too.
Take this morning for instance…
I sooo wanted to blog first thing…
But I scolded myself and said…
“You can’t blog until you write your 2K words.”
Oh the pain! Oh the anguish! The suffering!
But I did it.
Hmm?
I wonder if the guy who came up with NaNoWriMo…
Actually does this writing exercise himself?
I’ll have to research that and–
OMG!
His name is Dr. Wicked! Dr. Wicked?
What kind of sick writing game am I participating in?

Always, Em-Musing

Pre-mental suffering! LOL!! That is too funny.
Sometimes I think the real reason I can't do NaNo is because I have writer's ADD. LOL

Bravo!
I didn't sign up but I probably should next year. Good luck!

I'd imagine a book could be written, some type of writer's how-to, about all the November anguish of writers plowing through NaNo! It would make for a great read. Happy writing to you :)

I'm keeping it up too! In fact I've done 3k the past two nights. Why does it feel like suffering at times??? I really do love to write!

LOLOL I always adore these, they brighten up my day.

I've completed my NaNo plan, rounding out at 63K and I've completed my novel. I avoid all distractions while writing, I write at lightning speed so I can get back to all the fun!
