I’m tossing in the glove. White flag up. I surrender already!
You know, I thought I’d be more disappointed if I didn’t “win” NaNo this year, but then I experienced “Break down Sue” this fall and came to some potent revelations. I’m not superwoman. I can’t do it all.
That doesn’t mean I haven’t achieved some pretty good goals – got over 20,000 words drafted on my newest novel, Drift. Got a decent outline, some great characters and a hopeful attitude. I’m a writer. I’ll finish it when I damn well finish it. I’m disciplined. I know how to sit my butt down and write.
Do I sound a bit desperate and defensive?
Sigh. I know there’s still time left in the month, but no energy left in me. So, for now, just picture ole Sue, standing on the side lines, sipping a cup of hot cocoa, cheering all you crazies on.
Go! Go! Go! I say.
