So far, not so good on the Nano front: 2300 words. >_< Times like this I start to wonder why I keep signing up for this thing. After all, November's traditionally a hellish month for me. Between holidays, financial stress due to said holidays, Seasonal Affective Disorder (which seems to affect my fibromyalgia), and a shitload of "anniversary" stress due to the sheer number of times that November has sucked more balls than a drunk whore at a frat party....... Yeah. It doesn't help, either, that I managed to pull muscles from my forearm up through my shoulder to my back, and all around the right shoulder-blade. Compensating for the injury has led to strained muscles in my chest. Fun all around. 🙄 On the bright side, I'm happy with what I've written so far. That counts for something, yes? 😉

  1. I think we need to do our own WriMo in May. I haven’t started my nano project, and now will need to work on something completely different anyway.

    May’s good.

    Sorry about the muscle strain, Nonny. 🙁 I’ll be thinking of you.

  2. LOL. How’s April sound? A friend of mine, Feath, hosts an annual writing challenge a la Nanowrimo, April Fools. It’s a “set your own goal” challenge, though, so it’s easier in some ways than trying to stretch for 50k when there’s absolutely no way you can manage it.

    As for the muscle strain, they’re doing much better right now. Thank gods.

  3. Doesn’t sound like November is your best month. 🙁 It’s hard to sit and type with all those physical problems. For you to whip out the pages is pretty damn good. Even without health problems 2300 words is good.

    My friend has the SAD disease and she takes Valium in the fall and winter months. She teaches middle school kids, so that’s probably another reason to take Valium, lol.

    Good luck!
