This was the question I asked myself today about NaNoWriMo as I have quite some way to go to achieve my golden NaNoWriMo halo. Hell no, I said to myself, even though today, I feel like it! So this morning I wrote over 6000 words in a seemingly vain attempt to catch up. Then at lunch time, I headed off to an afternoon of workshops and seminars about getting through my four events at The Adelaide Fringe. So many things still to do, even more deadlines to make, media releases to write… still such a long way to go, and that is only the Fringe. The NaNoWriMo is more pressing, so for the rest of today, the Fringe can sit in the to do basket set inside my brain and on my desk. Yes, that’s right, the desk with so many piles on it if I sneezed or fell onto it, they’d all come crashing down! So for now, I’ll plug away at that target of 50,000 words. Not nearly there, but not unattainable either. No socialising, no Facebook or twitter or phone chats tonight, most of tomorrow free, and the deadline is still more than 78 hours away! Yikes, I think I need more than just a few cheerleaders over the next few days, as well as the willingness to lock myself away. I’m now also wondering if I should have done the 10 day Vipissana meditation course to prepare myself for this last lonely slog???? Love won’t get me there, but it might be the only thing now that will keep me going.
