Well, I suppose 433 words are better than 0.
I keep trying to console myself by saying that the previous years I did Nano, my kids were young. I had nap times to work with. I didn't have school, homework, evening family activities, and swim lessons to worry about. But what's truly frustrating to me tonight is how difficult the writing has been the last couple of days. I'm feeling no passion for the scenes and it's like trudging through mud to get anything on the page at all.
I figure if it feels this way tomorrow, I might try to skip to a different scene that I'm more excited about. Though, I think that might be tricky with this particular book. If that doesn't help, I might jump to an entirely different project. I have a paranormal novella all plotted that will probably be too short for a full month of Nano, anyway. Perhaps I'll pull that out and work on it to see if it flows any smoother.
Hope your week is coming along stronger than mine! Thanks for checking in!
