The first week of NaNoWriMo is already behind us. It’s hard to believe.
At first, everything was great. I was hitting the word count target every single day. I was posting my daily writing right after midnight to my Patreon so my patrons could read my awful first draft as I wrote it.
Then Sunday came around. Sunday was not kind to me. The time change messed me up. I spent the day feeling disoriented. I tried so hard to make writing happen, but I made very little progress. Everything was thrown off schedule. Even my updates to Patreon got pushed off until the morning. I just did not have the energy to get the post together at midnight.
Since Sunday I’ve been trying to get back on track, but it’s an uphill battle.
Once my brain got that tiny taste of laziness it did not want to let go. Even after sleeping in on Monday my brain still didn’t want to get back to writing at a NaNoWriMo pace.
It seems my week 2 slump started early this year. Now the truly difficult part of NaNoWriMo begins. Week 2 is when everything starts to feel like work.
Time to get to work.
How is NaNoWriMo treating you? Are you in a week 2 slump or are you still going strong?
