Not this time
This year I decided to try my hand at writing again. I was using NaNoWriMo as a challenge to write. Basically the idea is during the month of November, you write a new story and write 50,000 words during the 30 days. That's about 1,667 words a day.
Well, I had to stop. The reason is I just don't have time and it breaks my heart. It takes me almost 3 hours a day to write that much, basically my entire evening. After spending the entire day at work all I want to do is relax and not think too much. So I have thrown in the towel. I did manage to write almost 14,000 words in 8 days so I am proud of what I accomplished. I will probably try it again one day. Maybe when work does not consume so much of my day and I have more time. In the meantime, I'll just continue dreaming of fantastic worlds and amazing creatures.
