This month I had every intention of doing Nano. I usually enjoy how competitive it makes me. It usually pushes me more. And I quite enjoy it. My whole goal was to write and have fun.
How ever this time round everything went tits up creative wise. I hated everything I was writing. And I was having no luck with any good story ideas. Plus this year my mental health has been putting me through the ringer. And true to this year. It picked up this month.
I was feeling nothing but dread. The stress was kicking in too. Not to mention work has been an absolute bastard for me this month.
So I decided to end my run for the year. And I feel really good about it.
There is going to be a few success stories. Some people my even fail it in the end. But the whole point of this challenge is to write. To get into a healthy writing habit/routine.
And I feel like its a good thing to share my down fall this time round to maybe make someone feel better about how they are doing or not doing. And sometimes it’s ok to just tap out.
I may have not written anything I’ve liked but I did start writing again. So that whole goal was was checked off really.
