My Nanowrimo process

It’s Day 13 and I am only 41 words behind . . . However my eyes hurt and I can’t feel another migraine forming.

Between the cold weather with the heater, my female issues, dealing with a temperamental computer, I’ve had migraine at four days so far since I’ve started Nanowrimo this year. So only being 41 words behind is not bad.

I sometimes read the pep talk on Nanowrimo, and someone mention that “Writing sucks.” WTF?

It can make you frustrated when your muses and characters are taking you different directions, but writing does NOT suck. If you think writing suck, then why are you doing it? (Maybe you don’t like writing the endless report for work, that your boss does not read anyway, but Nanowrimo should NOT feel like work.)

I’m just so flustered when you want pep and you get blah. Grrr.

Ok here’s pep. Everyone has at least one story that just needs to get out. So stop saying “what if” or “i need to do it” and just write it. (Just like Nike’s theme “just do it!”)

Now I’m going to make dinner and then lay down so I can write more tomorrow.

Determined to win NaNoWriMo 2018

As most of you I’ve been writing is Camp Nanowrimo and this November I’m trying Nanowrimo for the 9th year.

I am writing a seven book series I’m calling Crimson Shadow Collection. There are about 75 vampires and this is the series is about their lives. I have been working on the set-up of this series since 2008-2009 I’m still stuck on book 2 even though I have many scenes for the other books written.

  • 2010 The Whispering Path
  • 2011 Driving Lies Book 1
  • 2012 The Crimson Shadow Collection: Melzela, (on my Rebekah Wolveire account)
  • 2012 Driving Lies Book 2
  • 2013 Driving Lies Book 3
  • 2014 The Crimson Shadow Collection: Daris started
  • 2015 Pieces of me (It was a personal collection)

2010 to 2015 I won each year, writing over 50,000 words (I was with my ex back then)

______________

2016 The Crimson Shadow Collection: Daris (between family drama and muses wanting to write scenes for book 3 to 7, I did not hit 50,000 words)

2017 The Broken Path (My location and exhaustion kept me 15,000 words short of my goal: it’s not finished, but on back burner)

2018 The Crimson Shadow Collection: Daris (I am determined to write and get my 50,000 words)

I’m working Daris again as there are notes, scenes for it everywhere on my flash drive but nothing is together in chapter form. I’m going to put it together.

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.

Updates

I love to blog, but usually during times of no blogs I’m doing one of two things.

  1. I’m fighting writers block, usually more blogs get written
  2. I’m working on writing projects

Lately it’s been a mixture can’t tell by September’s word count 80,627 (that’s everything from diaries, lists, bligs, stories, novel scenes, to notes)

This month, I’m working on notes for my Nanowrimo.org project. . . Crimson Shadow Collection: Book 2 Daris. My muses woke me up from a hard sleep at about a week ago, and I’ve been working on it since. Yay! Back to my dark world. . . The weirdest thing happened my mood swing have slowed down, and some days when I’m writing I feel less depressed and lonely.

I keep telling everyone I need to write and yet few really hear me.
