Nanowrimo prep vs time

I’ve been dealing with sleep apnea issues, (even when I do sleep, I feel like I barely slept. At times I live on 5 hour energy drink shots.)

I have anxiety (I have constant worry and current living situation has me on the edge. I also have what I can zombie insomnia, I can’t sleep, but I can’t focus, grrr. My living situation has me on extremely high anxiety over extreme cleaning in which furniture is to be moved vs timed issues.)

I have extreme mood swings because of this and my painful female issues.

These health issues can get in the way of true bliss. . .writing.

I’m hoping to get my notes organized while all of this cleaning going on. . . Just thinking about it drains me.

Lights Out

Lights out. Sighs.

The fates must not want me to write at night. . . But my muses work at night the best. . . Grrr. Sigh.

This is the second light I have broken within the last 6 months. I got two desk lamps . . . The first on the clip busted. The second one bust the connector from the cord and what screws in the bulb.

I can’t read my writing to retype on this blog. . . It strains my eyes and causes several migraines. (I cannot afford to fall behind on lay in bed all day. . . I have to help my mom.)

I’m trying to clean and write during the day, but it’s hard to focus.

I hope get a light soon.

Finished Camp Nanowrimo

I completed Camp Nanowrimo July 2018 with the word count 30,691.

I swear as soon as I just barely got pass 30,000 words . . . it was like my muses stopped. I hit a writing brick wall.

I can write a few blogs, but its like muses saw the up hill hike for part 2 and all said “hell no!” LOL.

I am grateful that I finished part one, and I wrote over 30,000 words by hand.

However even my desk lamp broke, so next month it will be more blogs.

Camp Nanowrimo Update

I’m flustered, because . . .

  1. My desk lamp got broken.
  2. As soon as I got to 30k my muses stopped
  3. Whether I sleep 1 hour or 10, I still feel exhausted
  4. Every time I try to write in the day, I get interrupted

I did make my goal by 440 words. Maybe tomorrow I’ll reread and see if anything sparks my muses.

Every time. . .

It seems every time I give myself writing goals something always happens. . .

First nanowrimo I got two weeks of migraines

Whenever I give myself a personal goal, I’ve had . . .

  • family issues
  • mental break down (unrelated to writing)
  • I was in a car accident
  • Headaches
  • Sinuses
  • Depression
  • Hand cramps
  • Sleep issues
  • Moving
  • Female issues

However I always seem to manage to get my main word count in. It is what I want. . .

This month not any different, I have my anemia (from endomentrial hyplasya I know I didn’t spell that right, its a fancy term for very heavy female periods) mixed with my sleep apnea. I slept the last 40 hours out of 48 hours. I can’t think straight or get my process muses. They are sleepy too.

I need to stop giving myself personal goals and simply write.

I’m taking today off to see if I get my mind to work on its own. I’m over 17,900 words, so I’m very ahead.

I’m tired. It’s sleep time.

Writer’s block again, sigh.

Sorry, I haven’t written much, but my health issues vs clueless doctors have me scattered brained.

My depression and anxiety are high so much that even my muses are mentally flustered. They are taking it out on the office too. I think we’ll have to do a mental remodel.

I’ve tried reading other works, rereading my work, watch movies, listening to music, and playing Sims, but I feel more lost and mentally tangled.

I just hope I feel better next month and get out more.
