You may be aware of our heroine’s battle with the NaNo Curse each year, Dear Reader. Fighting through it in order to grab enough words is always a challenge. Over the last several years, it’s taken the form of health issues. This year is no different. I’m going to be a jittery, stoned mess for Thanksgiving tomorrow. Frankly, it sounds fun.
Usually, the NaNo Curse hits me earlier in the month. I thought it had when I was mildly ill with some back problems, but I fought through and kept writing. Both suddenly exploded the last few days.
I’m lucky this year. I already exceeded the 50k. I won’t finish the rough draft for the novel by the end of November, but that’s okay. I’m taking a few days off NaNo to make Thanksgiving as great as possible for my sons and rest.
Cheering on all of you wrimos who are working through the holiday (or the regular days of the week for you who are outside the US). You go grab those good words. Shiny!
Happy Thanksgiving to all, US or no. May the real spirit of the holiday fill you and those you love.
