NaNoWriMo’s an Energy Vampire. Hey I Should Write That Down.


NaNoWriMo 2017 Participant FlairI’d forgotten how tiring NaNoWriMo can be, how it colors the world until everything is the word count. And no matter how long or how little time it takes to get the words out, afterward, it’s as though you’ve depleted a finite internal source.

Or maybe that’s just me.

I’m still trucking along, with a total over 15,000 so far. A NaNo rebel, I continued with a manuscript I’d already started, so I should top 30,000 total on the manuscript today.


I hope you will understand if this blog is a little less frequent while I’m churning out words as quickly as my fingers can inaccurately get them to form. Anyone else finding it tough to keep a blog going during NaNo? Or maybe finding it cathartic to keep one?

Life is a juggling act, no matter whether you’re juggling cannon balls, oranges, chainsaws or words. Sometimes we drop a few. That’s perfectly fine.

Just watch your feet.
