Still writing . . . until my fingers bleed . . . and now a new face . . .

Thursday, 18 November 2010  |  Posted by Brenda Drake

I’ve been drinking pot after pot of coffee, and I still don’t have any energy lately. So right now I’m drinking a Keva Juice with some sort of miracle energizer additive in the hopes that I can speed write today. NaNoWriMo is kicking my butt. Per the status on the site, if I keep writing at this rate, I won’t finish until December 4th. Oy! Just Oy! So I’m gearing up to whoop NaNo’s ass. I will make my goal today, which is 2,000 words, in spite of all the distractions. I’m just putting up a brief post to say, for those of you struggling with your writing, take a break, grab a cup o’ joe, and join me in the suffering. This too will pass, be it at the end of a sentence, at the end of a page, or at the end of the month,. We will prevail!

On another note, I’m trying out a new template for my blog. One that is simpler and won’t take forever to upload. Let me know if you like the new one or if you liked the older one better. I kinda like the older one, but I’d hate to have it be too slow.

Great. Well, if you’re participating in NaNo, why the heck are you here reading this? Get to writing!

That’s it. Slurp!
