Today as you know is Monday, November 16th. We have hit the halfway point and are now on the downward side of the Nanowrimo roller coaster!
I slept for a better part of the day but that’s okay. My body obviously needed it if I was able to sleep that much. I feel good right now. I am taking a break from going through things and making an effort to downsize for my move in a few months.
Yes my move is still a few months away but I really need to start working on this now because if I let it get down to the wire, I will be freaking out way to much then.
As for Nanowrimo and my writing this month. It has not gone the way that I had planned whatsoever. I am trying to rework things and refocus but I just can’t seem to get a grasp. I have lost a lot of motivation in my work and belief in myself in the process.
I told myself that I wouldn’t let myself get down this month. I would have fun writing and not let negativity get in the way. But alas, negativity has managed to seep its way in as it normally always does.
Last year during Nanowrimo, I was moving into my apartment and that was the reason why it was so hectic last year. This year, midway through Nano, I get a lease renewal from my apartment complex stating that I can renew for anywhere from 8 months to 14 months. I was expecting to have at least a 3 month option because I needed that time to pay my car off. I can do 3 months but it would have to be on a month-to-month basis and it would increase my rent $210 a month plus a $300 month-to-month fee. That’s ridiculous.
I cannot afford that.
But Amanda and Scott have told that I can stay with them for a bit if I need to and that helps. I can stay with them and I won’t have the almost $900 a month rent cost and I can pay my car off that much earlier.
So it is all going to work out.
I was stressed beyond measure on Friday and then yesterday was almost just as bad. Today has been better and it is looking up as the day goes on as well.
Getting rid of books and downsizing is feeling good because it doesn’t mean that I can never buy some of the books again but I could always buy some on my kindle instead.
I would like to go on ahead and get all the boxes out of the closet today and finish getting the closet cleaned out. That would be a large, encouraging accomplishment today.
But we shall see how the day goes on!
How are you doing this month? How’s it going for you this month? Let me know in the comments section below!
