Today kicks off National Novel Writing Month! Huzzah!
I have finished my writing for the day, and for the moment, I’m ahead of schedule. For the moment, I am on task, with my target firmly in my sights.
I have already experienced word-drain, that phenomenon of writing a bunch of words and suddenly finding that you’ve used all your words and can’t maintain a normal conversation, as when I attempted to point out to my husband that someone had done something to the candle on the table, but I couldn’t think of the word. “You know, the candle. Someone–it’s not where it was. Somebody–I can’t think of the word–across the table–”
The word I was searching for was “moved.”
Let the super-happy crazy funtimes begin! Who else out there is getting their NaNo on this month? What is the most amazingly brain-draining thing it’s done to you?
