Yes, I’m participating. I only decided to do so around 11:30 pm on Sunday night. I’ve been finding it difficult to focus on one project and I decided last night that maybe NaNoWriMo would give me the direction and motivation to complete at least one of my shorter novels. I settled on a dark paranormal novel that I started some months ago but never finished. I met my 1600 word goal for today and actually had some time to do some drawing. Who knew? Why can’t I be this productive everyday? I think maybe I’m just trying to force too much productivity into the day. 1600 words seems like plenty in November but come December I’ll probably end up stressing because I couldn’t fit in 5k. But for now, I’m going to relax and doodle a bit in my Moleskine while watching Monday Night Football.
