NaNoWriMo Days 19-20
I admit it. I've been a bad novelist. I took a whopping two days off in a row, and haven't written a word since Thursday. In fact, I've hardly written at all; a few fragments of a short story, but not much else. We've just been so busy celebrating my husband's birthday that I haven't made the time (okay, I've also gotten quite absorbed in Eavan Boland's New Collected Poems and have been spending much more time reading than writing). Hopefully I'll make it to a write-in today, and even if I don't, that's okay; I need to stop castigating myself for taking breaks. And I'll definitely get some writing done on it tomorrow; it's going to be a butt-in-chair day with a friend!
