Making Time I Can't Find

The first full week of WEDIO was technically a success, in that I did write every day. Yay! 

Admittedly I made it because my “write something every day” rule was very lenient, allowing me to work on various projects and count even the most pathetic of word counts. It’s a start, but I have to admit that I’m already dreading Nanowrimo. I adored its special breed of chaos last year and succeeded in reaching my 50,000 word goal two days before the deadline, so part of me is certainly excited about attempting it again. The other part of me, however, is screaming about how much busier my work schedule is this year and reminding me that Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays will never be productive writing days and neither will the weekends when I have to travel. I’ll probably need to average 3000 words every day that I can write, which doesn’t sound insurmountable by any means but is still much more prolific than I’ve managed to be on any day so far this month. Or this calendar year, for that matter. 

But I'll just have to use every drop of time that I can wring out of my days. If my husband honors his plan to try Nanowrimo this year, I'll definitely feel like I need to join in too. And even if he doesn’t, I’ll probably still talk myself into it, because clearly I’m a sleep-despising masochist. 

I'm just stating for the record that it's going to be crazy.
