TOO MUCH!

November 3, 2016

Tags: Cubs, NaNoWriMo

It really is too much in one week, let alone one month. In the middle of a very upsetting and weird election that will culminate on November 8, we have a nail-biting World Series, and to top it all off, the National Novel Writing Month (better known as NaNoWriMo) for which to tap out 50,000 words by November 30. And two important family birthdays for me, besides.

So when is there time to write? Hint: Just don't sleep.

I write in the quiet of the middle of the night and early morning. I usually think more clearly then, when there are no distractions. Except that right now, I am so excited that the Cubs won the Series, I may not be able to sit still long enough to get the words down (my apologies if you are an Indians fan; it was a very, very close game).

When do you write?
