Halfway Through

Halfway through Nano. Now it seems like I will never reach the finish line. How will it be possible to get that far? Like most things that are a long and possibly tedious job, the only way to do that is to not think much about the end and just keep on going. And so it is. Another thing I have to do this month (!) is to walk the Turkey Trot and make Thanksgiving Dinner. The Turkey Trot is just a two mile stroll with a few thousand other people and dinner will be made easier since I am only cooking part of it. So that is all theoretically under control. But the writing! Nobody is going to help me with that one. Where is inspiration when it is needed, where is my muse, who always seems to be painting her toenails or something just when I need her to do some brilliant job of jabbing me in the right places. Oh, well, I'm used to going it alone for better or worse. A lot of people have helped me in the past by commenting and advising on fragments of writing I have done. I can't expect them to write it FOR me, can I? No, that's my job. And now I'd better get to it.

  1. I'm in the same boat. I'm totally not liking my story and wondering how will I ever make it work, but I guess that is part of the Nano experience. Good luck and I'm looking forward to reading the next Edie Malone adventure.
