I need to read more.
It’s back! NaNoWriMo is the annual writing event that covers the month of November. The idea is to write so many words per day, until you have a complete novel.
I hope to take part, but at the moment I’m stumped!
I can’t take credit for this one. B.G of Getting Through Anxiety has drawn me a Timon! Please check it out, it’s very good!
I’m so sorry what for I inflict upon you, my brave readers:
One of the things I want to do is write a story (we are all meant to have one great novel in us, after all). Over the years I have started to write and then hit a brick wall with my ideas, unable to figure out how to take them any further. Lately, I can’t even focus on how to get started with a story, let alone anything else, and this is currently a source of burning frustration for me.
I know what part of the problem is. I am easily distracted, which straight away doesn’t help. My attention will wander all too easily, and I know this happens but I don’t know what to do about it.
I also find it difficult to focus. My brain is a whirlwind of ideas, none of which will solidify into something that can then be developed. I dare say I am slowly driving myself mad with this.
Finally, I work full-time, and by the time I come home, I don’t have the energy to plow into writing something. From somewhere, I need to find that energy.
The three things I need then are:
- No Distractions
- Greater Focus
- More Energy.
Answers on a postcard please.
