I feel like a tiny spec at the bottom of this mountain.
And I need to be to the top of this mountain in less than 30 days.
And I don't have a lot of expience mountain climbing.
OK, I've NEVER climbed a montain.
I've climbed hills.
But never a mountain.
What on earth am I talking about?
(I love analogies & symbolism)
I've joined National BlogWritingMonth (NaBloWriMo)
National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo)
The blogging part I can handle.
The novel part...feeling a bit overwhelmed.
Every time I sit down to write, I get a little out...and then I think it's so horrible I restart.
I think I've restarted three times.
I can't committ to a story line.
What's wrong with me?!
In order to complete 50,000 words by November 30th, I need to write an average of 1.667 words a day. And right now, as of Day 4...I'm way behind.
If I can get caught up this weekend, it may be hopeless.
Are you participating in any kind of writing challenge?
If you're not a writer, what's your poison? What kind of challenges would you participate in?
