Last Saturday, July 20th, I participate in a the 10k in 24 hour word writing challenge.
I read about from this blog, https://abookhavenx.wordpress.com/2019/07/15/write-10k-in-a-day/
I did not get 10 k, but I got 5,845 words on my thriller novel trilogy. I am almost finished with book, the first draft of the thriller trilogy and I got caught up with my Camp Nanowrimo word count.
I had been fighting depression and home issues, so I was behind. I think because of that challenge will get my goal 30k word count this month.
Its 23 and I have about seven days. . . my two goals are reaching my 30,000 word count and finishing my novel.
I really think I can do this and when I do I redye my hair purple again. Yay.
I have been dealing with anxiety and depression, and it has been very hard on my body and mind. This means my writing has been suffering.
I have changed my project from Family project to short stories. . . If an idea inspires me, then I write it down. Then I just accumulate the word count of each story. I might post some on my flash fiction blog. . . http://rqshortstories.wordpress.com
I am also not pushing myself. (I had one break down and lost entire weekend to depression, reoccurring mono and sleep.)
I gave myself 30,000 words as a goal. If I make it, awesome. If I do not make it, then I can try again in November.
I hope just get some decent stories written, at this point word count is as it is.
I’m trying to type up the last chapter on the last novella of my thriller trilogy “Driving Lies,” and I feel like my feet are stuck in the mud.
I wrote about this once before. Actually it was funny, because it was when I was actually handwriting the ending to this exact project.
The thing is once I know this is done, then I have to edit this project. I’m horrible with editing. I’m a writer, not an editor. I realize that editors are so expensive.
I need a good edit before I show an agent or a publishing company.
I think I’m so afraid of rejection from these companies that I am purposefully holding myself back.
Question to my nervous self: What if they really like my work?
I am writing in Camp NaNoWriMo this month.
I gave myself the goal of 30,000 words.
I am working on a nonfiction piece of family stories.
(However with my depression and anxiety, it may get changed.)
However I have to do everything by hand. My battery charger dropped and is now magnetic and is causing our other units from charging when they are pulled in. So I’m thinking of selling my laptop and getting another. Grrrr.
Camp is no hands on.
