Stickin' To Your Guns

Or would that be sticking to your goals in this case? For those of you participating in Nanowrimo, more power to you! 50,000 words is an incredible goal and whoever accomplishes that is a marathon writer. I chose not to participate, instead trying to keep to my goal of five pages per day.

Those five pages sometimes feel like they will be the death of me...but on the nights that I slip into the groove of my story and more than ten pages happen to pour out, it makes up for the less than prolific times. Our lives are filled with distractions (Darn you, Ghost Whisperer! Your provocative story lines and Jennifer Love Hewitt's impeccable fashion sense tempt me from my goals nightly! Why must you be syndicated on several cable channels so your awesomeness can be viewed from 6-10???) but we must persevere.

No one stands in the way of our dreams but us. Write on, people!!


  1. Ack!! I thought I was the only one who watched/loved Ghost Whisperer! Where does she get those dresses!!!? Sigh.

  2. And those coats! She has a different one for every outfit! I just started watching this year but thanks to those reruns, I am caught up on all of them.lol

  3. I'm not doing NaNo, but sometimes I feel like I get to some pages and I'm going "What the heck is this?" That's when you skip out of the room with a lollipop and dream up something else that fits better. (Okay, normally I don't have a lollipop, but why should kids have all the lollipops anyway?)


It helps to know I'm not just talking to myself.
