Within spitting distance of 20,000 words in my NaNoWriMo manuscript and I have given up on correcting my grammar because it takes too much time. 😱

Nearing 12,000 words and my shoulders are aching from typing so much each day. I might have to dictate some of my NaNoWriMo words this year!

My NaNoWriMo word count: 7,072. After the first 1,700 words, this story took a sharp left turn and I have no idea where it is going.

NaNoWriMo begins! For the past month and a half, I’ve been training for this by writing at least 750 words every day. I am feeling optimistic about finishing this year.

I am accidentally reading five books at a time again.

  • A Canticle for Leibowitz by Walter M. Miller Jr.
  • The Bullet Journal Method by Ryder Carroll
  • No Plot? No Problem! by Chris Baty
  • An Unkindness of Ghosts by Rivers Solomon
  • Summerland by Hannu Rajaniemi

Today is World Mental Health Day. I would not be here to write this without the support of my friends and family. Reach out if you are struggling; reach out if you see someone else struggling. We can get through this together.
