NaNoWriMo 2018: Day 01

Today is Day 01 of Writing Daily.

Ugh! I requested today off so that I could get ALL the writing done.

Instead it’s almost noon and I have 38 words typed. I have more words put into this blog post than I do with my novel. Not a great start to #NaNoWriMo 2018, right?

FOCUS : Word of the Year 2018

The time of year is upon me when I need to choose my “word of the year“. I’ve been doing it for a few years, and the one year it worked well for me was when I chose “happy”. I almost went with it again for 2018, but instead I chose “FOCUS“.

I’m excited for this year!

My main direction for “FOCUS” will be the second definition. directed attention. I think it’s going to be a good year. I’m ready for something big and new to happen. I know that I am going to have to make it happen, but I am ready to FOCUS on me, on life, on all the things!

Goals for 2018:

Health/Fitness:

  • Focus and finish a fitness program
  • Drink me some Shakeology
  • Get back to the Gym

Family/Friends:

  • Make memories
  • Share love
  • Be present

Writing:

  • Write the novel I originally started planning for November
  • Win NaNoWriMo 2018

Have you chosen a word? How are you going to use it to help you set your goals for 2018?

I Don’t Even Know Anymore

This is all about #NaNoWriMo, and I’m so conflicted on what I want to do!

I know I want a fantasy romance. Romance because I’m a romance fiend. Fantasy because there are no real rules. Just the ones I set in place.

But I don’t know WHAT I want to write. I haven’t been given a clue on WHO I need to write.

I was talking to Krissy about it, and usually that helps. I’m doing the All Year Sprints workshops and that’s not helping either.

I don’t know what to do! I can’t even do any prewriting or planning until I do this!

What should I do? What shouldn’t I do?
