In the Groove: NaNoWriMo Days 16-19

NaNoWriMo, November 2020, DAY 16 – 1733 words

Dear Diary,

It’s Monday, so BlackLion had his online RPG. I tried to join a sprint with others, but no one was around. I tried sprinting on my own, but something was messed up with the bot, or more likely, with my internet connection.

Failed sprints. 

However, I still wrote my quota for the day, on my own. Then, since I’m often tired by the end of a Monday, I just read and went to bed fairly early.

DAY 17 – 2063 words

Dear Diary,

I had fun this evening, doing sprints with BlackLion and another friend on our new server. It really is more enjoyable with other people. I tend to stick with it longer and get more done, too.

It feels like I’m getting into a groove. I like the sprints with others best, but even when that’s not happening, I’m in the habit of writing in the evening.

However, I still have no idea if this book will come together in a coherent whole. That will all be determined later. In the meantime, I’m continuing to fly by the seat of my pants!

DAY 18 – 1466 words

Dear Diary,

This morning I woke up with a download for my next non-fiction book!

I guess all this focus on writing is inspiring me.

I knew I was going to be writing a book on creativity, and writing, but that was all I had. In the dream, I was given a title, The Elements of Creativity. I also saw that the sections of the book would be organized into the five elements (earth, air, fire, water, and spirit). I love it!

This often happens – getting more book ideas while working intently on a particular project. 

BlackLion and I did sprints on our Parallel PlayZone server in the evening. It’s becoming a new habit!

DAY 19 – 1717 words

Dear Diary,

This afternoon was the weekly Parallel Playdate. There were six of us on the Zoom call.

I did my writing during the session, though it felt early in the day.

Actually, even though I’m the facilitator, I got a bit caught up in my writing towards the end and was a couple minutes late for the final check-in. That’s gotta be a good sign, right?

Hey, if you’re hoping to get some writing done before this strange year is over, check out my new video series on Writing Through the Holidays. You can get it by jumping onto my mailing list.
