Are you sick of NaNoWriMo yet? I am. Wherever I go, whichever blog I visit, it's always "NaNo here, NaNo there". Really, I'm tired of it.
The reason why I can't stand reading about NaNoWriMo at the moment is simple: it's guilt. I had planned to write 2,000 words daily and finish my 50,000 words on time. But alas! I'm nowhere near that goal.
As always, life happened. I know, what a lame excuse! I just failed to write every day. On some days, I even hated thinking about writing one single word. There are so many different things to do, things that I have to do, need to do, how can I possibly make the time for writing 2,000+ words a day?
I've been so occupied with other things that I totally lost motivation.
A couple of days ago, I made a bargain with myself:
Write whatever you want to write, even it's not for WriMo, but write!
Did it work? Yes, it worked. Still works, or I would be writing this post.
If I can't bring myself to work on my NaNo-project, I choose a different writing project. There are always many, many WIPs waiting for me. I don't count these projects for WriMo, I'm very conservative about sticking to rules (even if they are my own).
How has NaNoWriMo been for you so far? Do you still enjoy it?
