ROW80 Check-In 11/16/11...Diminished self-doubt



So, last week I was in a bad place due to being so behind on my NaNoWriMo WIP.  Well, I'm still behind (extremely), but thanks to some very awesome people who stopped by with such encouraging words (thank you again), I'm not beating myself up about it.  I do have words down on the page and I have what I think is a great start to my novel so I'm happy about that! Even if I don't end up "winning" this month, I will have a great start to a WIP that I can continue to work on during the ROW80 challenge.

On another note, I submitted two of my stories to the Writers' Digest Short, Short Story competition.  The deadline was Tuesday and I got them in just in time.  Wish me luck!

Goals:
--try to get caught up on NaNo WIP
--get back to daily journaling

  1. Ugh, I'm getting further and further behind on my NaNo, too, but my approach is the same as yours. No use beating myself up over it, especially since I've still gotten a lot done! More than I have for any other NaNos in the past, so there's always that!

    Keep up the great work! Who knows, you might even catch up before you know it.

  2. Good luck on the short story competition!

    I am barely keeping up with the word count and I am afraid it is all garbage, but I am going to keep on going, in hopes that I can salvage something during editing.

    Keep on writing!

I apologize for comment moderation, but I seem to get a ton of spam so I'm afraid it's unavoidable.

Thank you for your comments. They are much appreciated!
