not even half way and I'm tired
that would totally be me. I'm easily distracted and lately when it comes to writing...I've been ADD level easily distracted. I'm like my daughter when she doesn't take her focus pill. the other night I was trying to write. I had no distractions(HAHAHA), quiet, and inspiration. I even put a pic of one of my characters up so the words would flow better. yeah I do stupid stuff like that. however, I soon lost my focus and found something else to suck my time up. it took me 2 days to write 1500 words. wth? I need another nanowrimo burst of muse action. my characters talk to me but I forget what they say. maybe I am secretly stonewalling because I am getting to the point where I have to write the stuff I don't like to write i.e. fighting and action scenes. although, I've even been putting off writing sex scenes and usually I bust them out right away because they are fun. however there's been so much action and world building, nobody is getting laid. I JUST wrote a sex scene. I know when I finish this ms I'm going to love it but it is driving me nuts because it's been tough. it is making me think of when I was pregnant. I was the world's worst pregnant person and was tired of being pregnant at 20 weeks. mainly because I had a hard pregnancy and sick alot. of course when it was over I loved the outcome but getting through it was a crap fest. so now I'm going to think of Death Hunter like a baby growing in me. hating growing it but will love it when it gets here.
