Already Behind

Already behind…

Nano’s, the struggle is real!

Well, fellow writers (and Nano’s) will know this struggle all too well. We’re on day three, of the month long project, and I am already behind. I should have 5000 words today, but I currently sit at a little over a thousand, because life got in the way.

Part of me is panicking, and wondering if I can do it or if I should just give up, but I know that’s Muriel talking. She wants me to give up, and she keeps telling me that I’ve no hope of actually doing it. She says that the world is better off without my novel, and that really, it’s pointless for me to push myself.

Well, you know what? F*** you Muriel! I will keep writing, and I will catch up, and I will finish, and I will prove you wrong!
