I just realized NaNoWriMo is just around the corner. Anybody planning to participate?
I have participated the last two years, but have never finished a novel. To be honest, I get so drawn into things in the outside world I freeze on the inside. Last year I was bogged down in the medicine fiasco and the year before my Aunt was in the hospital.
Sadly, I let myself be intimidated.
This year, I am better prepared. I have two unfinished novels from which to choose. Not just two, of course, but two from the previous Novembers.
This doesn’t mean I won’t panic and think either is (or both are) trash, but here’s hoping.
How do you center yourself in order to keep writing?
