NaNo Day 15: I’m Not Superwoman

I have come to the sad conclusion that I’m not Superwoman (not that I ever professed to be, but still…), and unfortunately I can’t do it all. Notice how I don’t have a NaNo graph to show my progress? Because I’m not progressing, not at all. I’m still at the same word count I was a week ago because I haven’t written a thing. Nothing. Nada. Zilch. Zero.

My supervisor is out of town this week and emailed me, asking if I could work this week, which means I work all day at home, get dinner ready, help the girls with homework, and then I’m out the door and working some more at the hospital.

I thought I might be able to eke out a few words each night after I get home, but that hasn’t happened. I’m so tired, I just want to crawl into bed and dream.

It’s probably a good thing I haven’t written anything, because it’d probably look like this: shewassofuckingtiredshedroppedrightwhereshewasandsleptforahundredyearzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

I’d wind up with pages and pages of Zs…which reminds me of a funny story of a doc who fell asleep during a dictation and ended up with pages of Zs. (Yeah, he got in trouble for that.)

I have, however, gotten a start on book 2 and have an outline worked out up to about chapter 6, so that’s good. And if I don’t make the 50,000-word goal, that’s fine too.

In fact, I will refer you to Nicole Peeler’s site wherein she discusses making that 50,000 goal and not making it, Dr. Peeler’s Five Laws of NaNoWriMo.
