Nanowrimo ate my soul

That is the name of one of the forum topics at  And oh, it is so very very true.

Things are not going well this year.  I don’t know why not.  Maybe too much has happened this year.  Maybe I shouldn’t have even bothered trying to write a novel.  Heaven knows this one is really really bad.  I mean even worse than the other two.

I am also way way behind.  My word count is only just over 13,000 words.  That is way below par.  And when you are trying to write a novel in a month, being below par is a bad thing.

So, I don’t really know what to do.  I just feel like nothing is happening in this stupid book.  And it is not supposed to be a book about nothing.  I thought it was going to be a romance but it doesn’t seem to want to be that either.

I suppose I could start over.  Come up with something completely different while conveniently hanging onto the 13,454 words I have already written.  I know, that sounds like cheating but it isn’t.  Remember, one of the first rules of The Nano is NEVER DELETE!  Yes, I know I was yelling.  I meant to do that.

Maybe my main character could go on an axe murdering rampage, or decide to become a man, or give up all her worldly possessions and move to a small town in Oklahoma.  I really have no idea.

Sigh.  Maybe I am not going to win this year.  That kind of sucks.
