• NaNo Diaries 2017 – Day 29

    There was supposed to be more time today, but I did manage to get some words done, which is actually really nice, it wasn’t much, but it was enough to really get anywhere. Having stocktake at work today has made it really hard to want to write. I have been up since stupid o’clock and even though I got to leave earlier than what was said, I did spend most of the time pretty frustrated because my air conditioner isn’t quite working, the man came to fix it and cleaned the filter but it’s still leaking and that makes trying to focus hard. I love the heat but I don’t do…

  • NaNo Diaries 2017 – Day 28

    I’m starting to sound like a broken record here, I had plans to get so much writing done but I did a full day of work today and it was hectic. Some days when I work full days and spend the entire day talking to customers I just want to shrink away and not do much, Travis and I have had so many issues with this story, mostly because I don’t know what’s happening and Travis is being so stubborn. Mostly I like a challenge but this is getting ridiculous. Come on, Travis, work with me a little. Please! Words: 0

  • NaNo Diaries 2017 – Day 27

    Today, well I didn’t get very far, it’s been a pretty crappy week, I’ve been dealing with a lot of emotions things in the last few days and I’ve been hoping that I could write through it but my brain isn’t letting me. Today’s update is going to be pretty short, which makes me sad because this has been probably my least productive NaNoWriMo in years, but I think that this is ok too.

  • NaNo Diaries 2017 – Day 26

    This seems to be a little bit of a problem. I’ve done no writing in like three days and it’s starting to get bad, like I’m losing who I am as a person and maybe it’s because this is challenging so much or because I keep being so busy with work. Uni finished and I was supposed to be finished with all of the pushing and hustling, but it seems like I’m still managing to do it with work and maybe it’s my inability to say no…or perhaps even when I do, I get made to feel like I’m crap. And that’s what I hate. No writing today either. And…

  • NaNo Diaries 2017 – Day 25

    It’s the freaking weekend…and that doesn’t mean much in this retail moonlighter’s life. Just means that it’s hectic. And boy was today busy, I didn’t manage to get any writing done before work, which is fine, but then I didn’t end up getting any done later, either. Had date night with the man and watched the Justice League movies, which I really enjoyed, yeah there were a lot of plot holes and things that could have been done differently but all in all it was a good movie. I loved the whole theme of Hope throughout the movie…and who doesn’t love Gal Gadot in leather…can we just appreciate her for…

  • NaNo Diaries 2017 – Day 24

    Today is a new day, I got myself to the gym and managed to hit my workout pretty good, I keep getting pretty frustrated because I wanted to do my finisher which includes using the ropes but every time I go to use it or even think that it’ll be the next thing I use, the functional area at the gym becomes crowded (which is where the ropes are) and I can’t seem to do it. Ugh, but oh well. I had every intention to write today, but even as I sat down to do it, my brain just didn’t want to do it. I tinkered around with a little…

  • NaNo Diaries 2017 – Day 23

    I had such huge hopes for today, but I got a text the night before from the assistant manager at work and he wasn’t feeling too good, so I managed to not get any writing done at all. I wanted to, but it didn’t look like it was going to happen. Sometimes writing and NaNoWriMo is all about taking the time you need. Normally I go all out at the beginning because I know what my stamina is like at the end of the month. The close I get to Christmas (and being in retail) work ramps up and I get no time for me. After work I was so…

  • NaNo Diaries 2017 – Day 22

    This story really won’t write itself. Travis and I have, what seems to be, a really tough relationship. He won’t let me know more about him and he won’t let me write his story without some serious resistance here and it’s starting to get on my nerves. I started to get somewhere and then it seems like anything and everything that can distract me will be able to distract me. I did manage a solid writing session and I really wanted to go to the write in at my old uni today, but I was on waiting for a delivery duty, which didn’t come until like 3pm, so I could…

  • NaNo Diaries 2017 – Day 21

    I had a full day of retail work today, juggling both of my jobs, I left the house at 7 this morning and had a brief stint at home to change uniforms and then didn’t get home until 6. It was a tough day, I manage to bruise my thigh up pretty well at work so I was not up for much today. It seems that the universe was definitely on my side and urging me to relax a little. And if it wasn’t that it was getting interrupted through both of my writing wars in the chat, so it’s 10:30 and I’m calling it a night because I’m getting…

  • NaNo Diaries 2017 – Day 20

    Today’s wording was a little more productive between all of the things I had to do, which was actually really nice. My fingers, by this stage were actually itching to get some writing done. Today’s session was tempered a little by the fact that I pulled something in my hand again. Every time I seem to think that it’s on the mend I’ll do something stupid like hold my cast iron skillet, that’s heavy as fuck, and think that it’s all good. Nope. Not today. It’s ok though I managed to get a solid session in. But the problem that I have now? Or most of the time? My characters…
