hands-up

Hands up who feels this during National Novel Writing Month towards almost everyone or anything that stops you writing?

Even the simplest or quickest tasks aggravate us. It is time away from our words, those precious darlings we need to flow from our minds onto screen or paper. We try to disguise our exasperation but our tense muscles and quickening pulse are sure signs we are not happy. This is why we need to make preparations before November 1st.

Fill the freezer, plaster ‘I’m Writing!’ signs everywhere. Escape to the library, coffee shop or anywhere the kids can’t find you. Tell the family the laundry fairy is on strike as well as the housemaid. If they need anything they’ll have to do it themselves.
