|This is me today.... feeling a little crazy!|
That was.... until today. Today I am a nervous wreck. I can only assume it is because I am about to start a 30 day, 50,000 word journey... YIKES!
The day didn't start off on the right foot. I had a mental journey of what needed to get done. The first priority was to publish my Keysocks review on Hubpages. Most of it was already done. I just needed to add some pictures and do some final tweaking. My second priority was to write this blog. My intention was actually to do a Vlog but after looking at the clock I realized time wasn't on my side and frankly, those Vlogs take me hours. (Mental note - maybe I should make them shorter!)
It was already after 12 and I have yet to even do more than just think about NaNoWriMo and the fact that it has started and I have not!
In fact, my stomach just growled reminding me that I have forgotten to eat breakfast. (Probably because I ate the last bagel yesterday!) And my hands are shaking and I know I can't blame that on the nerves. (That is the whole pot of coffee I downed!) My son isn't dressed yet... but what can I say... I am not either. Thankfully my daughters are pretty good at doing that on their own.
So is this what the next 30 days is going to be like? I am a mess... my house is a mess... and my son is eating candy for breakfast because I am preoccupied with NaNoWriMo!
Yet, I have this weird feeling that this is just day 1 jitters. After all, I don't know why I am so worried about it. The story is already there... I just need to get it down. And technically, I only had three objectives to the day... once I publish this, two of them will already be done. Now that I think about it... 1700 words doesn't seem that unbearable anymore!
So I guess it is time to hit publish and getting going. I got a book to write and it doesn't look like it is going to write itself!
