Refilling the well

Wow I can't believe it's been so long since I posted something here. Time flies when you are having fun and when you are up to your eyeballs. Just got back from a couple weeks of vacation and damn it felt great!

Got a chance to relax, play around with some ideas, didn't do much writing although I did take my laptop down with me. I came to the conclusion that, while I realize that procrastination is my worst fault, I cannot guilt myself into writing. It was getting to the point that I felt so bad about not having any significant work done on my book, I couldn't get myself to write even when I wanted to.

In short it stopped being fun. I wasn't writing for enjoyment I was writing to finish and I hated everything I wrote. So a couple weeks guilt free and I feel much better. I want to write, I need to write. I posted a note on a blog I visit and it practically turned into a novel LOL. I'll take that as a good sign and carry on from here.

I want to do this and I can. I just have to stop coming down on myself so hard because all it does is clog up my creativity. Now you might ask what am I going to do when I have official contracted deadlines? I'll cross that bridge when I get to it, (I can't wait!) but until then I'll enjoy the luxury of not having to rush.

Good news is National Novel Writing Month is starting up again! Every November I participate in this event. 50,000 words in 30 days. This will be my third year and I'm 1-1. Finished the first year, but didn't last year. This year is the tie breaker. I'm listed under the name FeyRhi, feel free to add me as a buddy, I need to be and love to nag..I mean support all those who attempt the insanity that is NANOWRIMO.
