I have had a pretty notebook from TJMaxx in my office for quite some time now. I started writing short stories in it on vacation at least 3 years ago. Writing on vacation is a breeze because my mind is clear and there are no deadlines. Writing at home with a dirty house, a barking dog and a dancing washing machine isn’t so easy!
My new boss told me about NaNoWriMo recently. I thought it was a good idea but I am totally overwhelmed by the idea of it and the people on Youtube who are just so committed. WOW! It seems like most users are writing Young Adult(YA) fantasy novels. It might not be an online community I will be involved in but it is might just be a good motivator!
Yesterday was my first day writing and using the website. I don’t think I will ever get an hour in every day but I did log a little time in yesterday. I went to the local library and hand-wrote (yes that is right, in cursive, with a PEN and I didn’t TYPE ON A COMPUTER) quite a few pages. It was a nice flow and also a nice distraction from life!!
The website seems to be pretty user-friendly. I was able to track my time last night which was a really motivator!! Let’s see if I can keep it up!
