NaNo and Other Writings

Standard

*Warning: this is a unedited, rambling post*

I did complete Nano, but it was difficult.  The story kind of dissolved into a incoherent mess by the midway point.  I hope it’s something I can fix, if not I’m not too worried about it.  Goodbye Summer was never supposed to be a serious work anyway, I have better ideas and things that fit my style more anyway.

The end of the year is approaching and I haven’t seriously worked on a piece of writing since November 2012 (when I got my job).  Every time I sit down and try to write I become easily distracted with something else or I’m too tired to focus on writing anything.  I used to love writing and did it all the time, updating my stories on Wattpad quite regularly, now I update a story every couple of months and there are stories laying around, waiting for an update when it’s been almost a year (and in some cases longer than a year) since the last time I touched the story.

I don’t know where my will went or why I don’t find all that much joy in writing anymore.  It’s frustrating because I would really like to finish a couple of stories and I had planned on finishing at least two this year, but that is most likely not going to happen now.  I need to find motivation again.  There are a lot of things I want to write, a bunch of stories I want to tell – and maybe that’s the problem.  Maybe there are too many stories I want to write.  It’s hard to focus on just one thing when there are so many ideas floating around in my head.  But how do you stop new ideas from coming?  sigh

I have tomorrow off work.  I’m going to sit down and disconnect the internet, unplug the TV and try to actually write something.  Maybe I can finish one story by the end of the year.  Maybe…

But which one~
