Day three of Camp NaNoWriMo was a huge bust for me today. I know it’s an excuse, but I received some disturbing and disheartening news this morning from one of the people I love most in the world. I sat with it all day, while sending out good vibes on repeat and trying to distract myself from how terrifying life is on a regular basis.
I could have tried harder to distract myself with my writing project, but my mind has never worked that way and I’ve never learned how to change it. I’m not going to beat myself up over it, though. Tomorrow is another day, and I did manage to get about 300 words total written between both projects, which is far better than zero words, so I’ll take it. I’m still feeling inspired and excited about both of the projects, so I’m confident I’ll be able to get back into the swing of things once my mind is a little clearer. Hopefully that is tomorrow.
I also got glorious cover art from the remarkable Starla Huchton for a short story I’ll be releasing later this month, so stay tuned for details about that as they become available. Maybe next week. You don’t know…
So there. I guess today wasn’t a total bust. Cover art, 300 words, and really, it is only 6:30… more words could happen before I retire for the day, and if not, like I said above: tomorrow is definitely another day, so here’s hoping it is much more productive and less stressful than today.
