Today I’m putting letting go of stuff on the back burner.
The thought of doing NaNoWriteMorhas crossed my mind more than once this month. Probably 20 times. So over the weekend I found the notes for the novel I started during NaNoWriMo in 2017.
In 2017 I didn’t make it very far. Only 8 days and 2913 words and then I gave up.
It was my first time. I wasn’t prepared. I didn’t have my characters worked out. I really didn’t have a lot of notes. I didn’t have an outline. I had a whole lot of nothing.
Over the I have looked at it once in awhile when the characters speak to me and I write notes and stick them in a file folder and back on the shelf they go.
On thing I’ve learned during this letting go process is that everything needs order. Including this file folder full of notes.
What a perfect time to go through this mess and decide what direction I want to go in.
If I finish NaNoWriMo great. If I don’t that’s fine too.
At least I know where I stand.with that project.
My writing life. This whole area needs to be cleaned out. Emotionally and office wise.
I’d like to use the month of November to figure out what that phrase means.
My writing life.
November is the perfect month to get started. Figuring out my writing life is actually on my Finishing The Unfinished list for the year.
I’m ready to dive in and see what’s there. What’s truly there and what it means.
It’s really time I get that part of my life cleaned out.
Yes, I am letting go of four things today but I’m only counting it as one because they came as one.
That’s all for today. Gotta go to work. I’m excited. It’s my 24th anniversary at the company I for today. I’m bringing snacks and it’s going to be a great day!
