I’ve been thinking more and more about what I’m going to do in November, specifically during National Novel Writing Month, short for NaNoWriMo.
For obvious reasons, NaNo is one of my favourite times of the year. But November 2017 promises to be a busy month.
As for what I’m going to work on, I want to write a novel. Or at least write a story of some sort. I wrote both prose and poetry in October. During November I plan to stick to the former.
Honestly, it’s been a while since I started a novel and stuck with it. So I hope I can change that this month.
I have some ideas I hope to explore further.
Fortunately, I have the second week off from school. Unfortunately, I’ve gotten into a good routine of writing on the commute. In fact, writing at home with so many distractions has presented a greater challenge.
Regardless, all I ask of myself is that I do my best.
Life happens. The unexpected occurs. But I’ll manage as best as I can.
That being said, I’ve enjoyed writing in the morning during my commutes sometimes more than late at night. So maybe it’s time I make some changes to my routine.
Earlier in the day my mind is clearer than it is at night. Then again, at night, I’m tired so I’m not as critical.
I don’t want to mess with my writing schedule too much. Still, I’m adjusting accordingly to whatever the world throws at me on any given day.
Changing is tough though. But the pay off tends to be worth the work.
There’s still plenty of time for me to figure things out. And I have a feeling I will.
Of course, I’m curious to know your plans or lack thereof for November, especially if you’re partaking in NaNoWriMo.
