Day one of NaNoWriMo and I’m utterly exhausted at the mere thought of the task ahead. Embarrassingly, I’ve lowered the bar for myself rather than dive into the idea that I may actually be able to pull off 50k words in one month. Not to make excuses but I have so many of them….5 kids…work all day…a husband that lives 3 hours away…oh, and Thanksgiving, hello! I will gift myself an entire day of reading and napping if I am able to pen 25k words in November and be proud with that. (Of course, this ‘gift’ will have to play out in my head if I accomplish my goal because of that 5 kids thing that I mentioned).
Good luck to all of the writers who started NaNoWriMo today! You’re gonna need it!
