2.) I should be writing. I should really be writing.
3.) I'm stuck.
4.) TWO WEEKS? Seriously? I HAD to catch a virus that takes TWO WEEKS, in NOVEMBER? Seriously? SO not fair...
5.) Yeah... Nap. Now. Write later.
Hmm. These are not good things for "staying motivated." But I'm making progress, really! I woke up before noon today, for the first time in almost a week, and I haven't taken one single nap today! I've spent lots of time very much NOT supporting my weight... but not one single nap! We just won't discuss that the result of all that wakefulness is still under 1,000 words for the day...
I'm actually mostly keeping to schedule this NaNo (have finally, really caught up)--hurrah!
Since I'm keeping to my schedule, this is a good omen. It might mean that I will like this finished novel so much that I will edit it in 2014... (on the other hand, I have a decade's worth of novels ahead of it in the queue, including a folder of great comments from Katherine on the Twilight Gem novel... :-O).
2013 was a very good year for the Journey; 2014 will be an even better year, so I need to set a good example with my this year's novel...
Keep it simple! Finish the novel without adding further complications! (and so I am on schedule to do that tomorrow).
I can really empathize with Paula's third one (zzzzzzzzzzzzz...!). Today at the Warrenville write-in I zzzzzz'd out several times (finally drank a Mountain Dew, which worked wonders).
