A Race Against time…

I am sadly neglecting all my other creative projects at the moment in a race against time, to finish my novel for NaNoWriMo. I need to write minimum of five thousand words a day, which I can do, providing I don’t get another migraine or something! My main problem is trying to stay awake! I have narcolepsy, and yesterday the sleepiness was overwhelming. I had to stop so many times, often just between paragraphs, get up and do something physical and then try again. I actually had four hour long naps throughout the day, and went to bed at 11.30pm still feeling shattered. However, it is encouraging too, because if I can do that much in a day, wordcount wise, then I should be ok for the remaining time.

Then, once Friday midnight comes, (and hopefully 50,000 words) regardless of whether the novel is finished, I will have to start thinking about christmas cards or else I won’t have them made in time. Another race against time?

    You’re doing so well, Suzie – way to go! I can hardly wait to read some of what you’ve been writing this month!

    I had another idea start bubbling in my brain tonight. It’ll take some time to bring to the boil, but I think it’s a nice little idea.

    By this time next year, I’ll have several storyines to choose from when I sign up for NaNoWriMo. I’m gonna HAVE to do it next year, or I never will!

    Just 25 hours for you to go now… 🙂

    Thanks Kell.
    You must, I think you’d enjoy it and get a lot from it. I have learnt quite alot about my writing since I started a month ago. All very useful. I suspect I’ll be doing it next year again:)
