NaNoWriMo 2017: Day 7

20171107-IMG_6826.jpg

I didn’t start writing until the afternoon and then my computer started acting weird. The monitor has been doing glitchy things for a while. I think the connection might have been a little dusty, I reconnected things and: so far so good! That and my late start and few other chores meant that I didn’t get much done on my novel. I wrote for about 20 minutes and got 670 words for the day. Oh well!

The last sentence I wrote:

“My brother Cloyd worked here in the stables and got me on not long after Xavier’s parents were married.”

Riveting.

NaNoWriMo: Day Ten

111010_002
I was kind of feeling down anyway. I don’t know. Words happened. I described room decor in a lot of great detail to avoid thinking about where my plotlessness was heading. I read the week 2 chapter in No Plot? No Problem! by Chris Baty. It reminded me that I feel like this every year. We ordered pizza and walked to pick it up. That made me feel better. Laying in bed I talked through my plotlessness a lot and found a few threads to follow. I vowed to write a whole lot this weekend when I inevitably find where I want to be in my novel and get excited about it again.

In any case, the parts of my day that didn’t involve my novel were beautiful. Life is grand.
