NaNoWriMo 2015: Still In This!

Yeah, so it's Day Eleven and I'm still aiming to win this thing but it doesn't come without a few wrong turns. I started the challenge writing one book and realizing it wasn't the book I wanted to write, so I stopped and started all over again. Needless to say, this put me behind a bit so I'm going to have to do extra work to cross the November 30th finish line.

All of this writing must be fit into days spent either carrying for my youngest son or in various tasks related to my publishing company. That's enough all on its own to keep me extra busy and give me excuses to not come to the writing during a given day.

I'm still making strides. I want this years' NaNoWriMo to make a transition point with my own fiction and represent how I plan to move forward with any future writing.

Writers are people who write. Like anything else, the more you write the better you get. The more practice you get the more proficient you get at something. I aim to make more time to practice but that means making those hard choices about time.

I'm sure I'm not the only writer that has to deal with these realities. Maybe some of you are doing the same thing during this monthly challenge. Hang in there and keep writing.
