NaNoWriMo is a time I need to buckle down and focus. I need to add words to my work in progress. I need to meet a work deadline. I need to meet all the publishing deadlines, market all the books, add newsletter readers so my BookFunnel promos get to more people, and somehow get enough sleep and exercise to avoid becoming a brain-dead vegetable.
Since Sunday, I've been meditating before writing. I use it as a way to focus my mind and get into the wording mindset. So far, I've added fast words to the vampire short, even when I'm still not feeling it. I'll be able to edit the piece of my heart into place so the story can grab and hold someone else. For now, at least I'm focused.
