NaNoWriMo Day 23 November 23, 2007Posted by caveblogem in NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month, writing.
Caught up today, after being behind my count for much of the last week. The lack of posting on this site means exactly what you would think it means: I am having a little trouble with the novel this year.
I am trying to go easy on my self. My wife says that this one is much harder to write because it takes place in the real world, where the plot devices that drove last year’s nano-novel, a comic-horror story, would look silly and contrived. It’s true, of course. Some days, though, a monster, a bit of magical realism, an explosion, would really help tack on more words.
Here’s a picture of my desk (click to enlarge).
It’s like pulling teeth every day. But somehow, they all grow back overnight.
