This is day two of writing as a rebel on my nano project. I didn’t get a head start like I did yesterday, it’s now 11:05 pm and I will be surprised if I am able to get my word count in before midnight.
I did just spend about twenty minutes setting up an item on a writing site that I’ve been a part of since 2007. The item basically has the link to this blog for any that is interested to check out, whether any do remains to be seen.
For that little bit, I wrote about 64 words, but will add it to my total here when all is said and done.
One nice thing about nano, even though you have to wait until November 1 to start writing and you have to quit on the last day of the month, you don’t actually have to write a specific amount of words each and every day. The suggestion is to write aproximately 1667 words daily, and that is to keep the momentum going, because as we all know the majority of people find it hard to keep from procrastinating when there is some major even they want to accomplish.
The only time this may not be a problem is when it’s a Type A personality, (is there still such a thing? I don’t hear about it much anymore), anyway, a Type A personality may not find writing to their taste. I haven’t studied this, so I don’t know for sure, in fact I know someone that owns a Small Press Publishing company that is constantly going to conferences all over the country, and setting up their books published at different events. She, herself has written several books and is a mover and a doer. She was also a teacher but has since retired. I would consider her a Type A personality.
Me? I know I’m not a Type A, but I hope I’m not too far down the line. I think I’ve gotten worse as I’ve gotten older. Why that is, I don’t know. It could be because I work two jobs and it’s easier to say I need some me time once I get home so that it’s then hard to get back in the swing of being busy the rest of the night.
One thing that helps motivate me is loud music, it can be Christian, rock, oldies, anything I can sing to. If I find something I enjoy and can play it loudly, I can get the dishes done, and clean the house. Maybe I could even do some bookkeeping for the business, a much needed task.
Generally I can’t get the music going as my husband is in the other room watching his shows. If I found my mp3 player, it would help a bunch, but I’ve not used it in so long it would be hard to get back into the habit once again.
I am able to work at the computer with music playing, the problem is that I’d want to do some singing out loud and that would disturb not only my husband, but my writing endeavors also.
Lovely, I’m up to 522 words plus the aprox 60 ish earlier, about half way there.
I read something today about characteristics relating to which day on the calendar each of us was born. But first I’m going to take a bit of a break, as I got home from work about an hour ago and have been typing ever since.
I’m back. As I was saying earlier at least with nano it doesn’t matter how many words a person types each day. The suggested amount is 1667 words per day, but anyone can type more or less of that amount. If a person starts out writing at least that much in the first week, then it’s more likely they will continue throughout the rest of the month.
I gave myself a break and played a favorite FB game that is slower than molasses to win, yet I keep playing and wasting my time at it. Two people from my job play it with me. I like some other versions of the game better, but can’t remember what they were called or where they were located when I used to play them a few years agao.
I should have just posted this earlier as then at least it would have been posted for the second-when I began to write it. I’m going to keep that the title even though it’s actually getting posted just after midnight on the third. I do hope to post another installment later on today after I get out of work again. Tomorrow, though, I begin working in the morning, so will have more of the day to do some writing.
I do plan on getting some leaves closer to the road tomorrow and Sunday because they will be in our area first of next week to pick them up.
On this post I have 817 words and the other item has 64words totalling 881 for the day, not counting this section of explanation.
