November’s first week has already passed by and, with it, the first week of NaNoWriMo 2018. So I must make a summary about this week and how it has been for me.
Since the 1st of November 2018, I am back writing, officially, both in my blog and on my novel (although I started with my novel back in this year’s Preptober, but you know the drill). And it has been nice but difficult, in a way.
Since I had no habit on writing, and I have been busy with different projects for the last months, it has been a struggle to find the right moment to start writing. And, you know, there is NEVER a right moment to do creative things. So I have found myself looking for that moment, desperately, in any and every circumstance. And I have managed myself to create that moment, since I was not able to find it at all. When I find myself in times of trouble… Ah, the life of an artist *drama queen moment*.
Apart from this struggle (which, I know for sure, it is not uncommon to any creative person), I have enjoyed a lot being back at writing, editing, posting and checking people’s reactions and comments to my texts. It is quite a work to do, but it is completely fulfilling (for me, at least).
And you, NaNoWriter, are asking yourself “Why should I care about this? I am here for the NaNo!”. And of course you are, but my NaNo is not only about writing a novel (which, as I have already stablished, I re-started it before this NaNoWriMo 2018), but about being a writer, creating an audience through this very blog, learning about my craft and trying my best to grow, as a whole. So I am glad if you find that on my words, even though this is not a proper summary of NaNoWriMo 2018 – Week 1 for any “puritan” out there.
Btw, I am trying to post everyday of this month on my Instagram about NaNoWriMo related things. Check my profile and let me know yours, I would be more than happy to start following you and commenting and liking your photos 🙂
