Now that NaNoWriMo is over, I have to figure out what to do with myself, writing wise. Unless I continue on with either story I started during the month of November, I will have to start with something new, which I am considering doing, although my creativity seems to be at a low point when it comes to ideas and starting things.
If there is one thing I learned about winning this NaNoWriMo it is that I need to plan better. Though I crossed the 50K finish line, the novel that I wrote is by no means wrapped up, finished, or concluded. It’s just a pile of words with no direction and no ending, and I am not sure if I ever want to go back to it as it is, because parts of it bored me to tears.
Either way, I have to get working on something. I said before that 2014 will be the year that I PUBLISH my first book – and I don’t even know what that book is yet. But I am on a mission! There’s only one thing I want to do with my life and if I don’t work at it constantly, what is the point of any of this?
It’s times like this, between projects, that writing feels less fun. When I am in the planning/thinking stages, that is when I am at my most anxious about the process, and when I get the most down on the whole thing.
Meanwhile, I just have to keep reminding myself that I can do this just like so many others have. It’s all up to me to put the work into it.
So, what should I write about today?
