I cannot seem to remember that today is Wednesday. All day I’ve thought it was either Tuesday (God forbid) or Thursday. I looked everywhere in my son’s school bag for his Thursday folder. Shocker. It wasn’t there because it is Wednesday.
My ROW80 post on Sunday got a lot of comments and words of encouragement from my fellow writers. Thank you! As some of you pointed out, I was being hard on myself.
I had a huge epiphany on Monday. HUGE! My week started in Arkansas on Monday. It was a work day trip. As I was driving home, I decided to turn on some music. Ray LaMontagne’s album “Trouble” sounded like a good idea and I am so glad I chose it. The song “Forever My Friend” came on and just like that the whole ending of my book unfurled in front of me.
Visualizing the ending of your book is huge, but when you’ve been wrestling with it for years, well, it’s massive.
The rest of this week, so far, was spent further developing my outline. It now has an ending!
Needless to say, I’m feeling very accomplished at the moment. I’ve also been working hard to maintain balance with my family life. We went to my son’s Kindergarten musical last night. It was fabulous. They were dressed in 50’s costumes.
This will be my last pre-NaNo post. It’s amazing to think that when I post on Sunday I will have three days of NaNo writing under my belt.
Wish me words! And good luck to my fellow NaNoers.
