Why Do I Want To Do Everything But Write?

Hey guys! I really have little excuse for not blogging as my word count for NaNo is sickeningly low. Golden is turning out so well for some reason. I open the document every day and . . . nothing. I hate it. Usually, I don't hate my rough drafts for a while, so this is strange.

I learned the hardest part about being a writer is just . . . writing. Does that make any sense

Novel(s): Golden and Watching You Burn
Days: 21
Total Word Count: 5,559
Cups of Coffee: 0 (Lots of Coke and Dr. Pepper, though.)
All-Nighters: 0
Panic Attacks: Too many to count)
Things Researched: Sociopaths, circus trains, the One Child Policy, circus animals, Chinese outdoor markets, etc.

So far, I've started reading a new book (Nick Lake's Blood Ninja), started two new AMVs (Animated Music Video) for Avatar: The Last Airbender, and watched another episode of Fruits Basket.

See ya! *goes back to tearing hair out over novels)

  1. Hi Alex,

    I want to invite you and Brigid to the launch of the publishing house I work for. Here's my FB page where I posted the blog post for the launch. Find the Fireworks pic! Hope you can make it! Karen :)!/pages/Karen-McGrath-Author/128041710541581

    Sad commentary on your NaNo, what happened?! Don't worry though, once the pressure's off, you'll probably like it again. And I get way to caught up in research so I have to refrain from that in November, lol! Hope all is well.

    Signing in from my other blog here, forgot...
