day 17

Thirteen days until the end of NaNoWriMo. The writing is going well. I’m in a groove and just bumped my word count up over 35,000. At this point, I’m more afraid of finishing than not finishing.

(I know. Bizarre, isn’t it? This fear of success? One more thing to add to my list of Things to Bring Up in Therapy.)

What have I learned on this journey so far?

--At least half of doing something is simply believing you CAN do it.

--4:30 a.m. is really early.

--The Crock Pot is my friend.

--I cannot do it all. I just can’t. Letting go of certain things I think I should do enables me to do the things I really want to do. (And you know what? The earth doesn’t self destruct when I say “no.”)

--My husband is amazing. Still.

Thanks for following my progress! (And being patient while I totally neglect this blog...)

Way to go Llamamama! It is a journey to not be an intentional underachiever (I should know!) and you are well on your way to significant achievement. You inspire me to do more! Write on!

Thanks for the update! Glad to hear you are still plugging along. I like your list...I could take a few pointers from the first item!

National Novel Writing Month sounds awesome! Your self-discipline is inspiring. I didn't join NaNaWriMo in time, but I have some projects of my own I've been thinking about. You may have just given me the umppphhhh I needed.

So good to check in!

Hooray Llama Momma! I, too, am knee-deep in Nanowrimo and counting down the days (and the words). :) Keep up the good work!
