How?

I want to know how do some of these working people do Camp NaNoWriMo with their busy schedule?
Yesterday, I had errands, and I have been dealing with female health issues. I was exhausted all day. I come home help out there and by the time I sit in front of my computer. I cannot think right.

I mean how do some of these people spit out 1,000 to 5,000 plus words with kids, husband, jobs, cleaning a house etc?
I can’t work at the moment, with my health issues, and yet I have the time. . . I’m just lacking the motivation and energy.
I love coffee, but if I drink after 6 pm, I do not sleep until 4 in the morning like a zombie.

I wish I could just constantly bust out 1,000 plus words at a day, so days I am lucky enough to get 140 words out.

  1. Celebrate those 140 words; take the pressure of someone else’s “can” off of yours. Do what YOU CAN and then celebrate having gotten it done. If, with all that’s going on for you right now, you find that you are awake and motivated for just a few minutes, then write for that few minutes and move on with your day. It’s about YOUR best, not how you compare to someone else. I write when I FEEL like writing, I don’t force it, I don’t berate myself because I don’t ‘feel’ like it on the same schedule as someone else. You are a writer and you will get the story told. There’s nothing wrong with living life at the same time :-). Hope this helped. Hugs and sending you healing vibes.

    1. I really appreciate the stern but positive pep talk. I need to remember the race in the end is only with myself. It’s not like I am writing the exact same thing as the John Doe, and I have to get it out by yesterday. Thank you, for giving me another idea for a blog 🙂
