NaNos

As you may have worked out from my uncharacteristically regular posting, I am attempting NaNoBloPo again this year. That's where you have to make a blog post every day for the month of November. Although I think the original expectation was that these posts would be detailed, insightful, and have actual content and meaning and not just be whatever random nonsense you can think of to fill a few sentences just so you can say you've posted something.

Oh well.

I'm not doing NaNoWriMo. Mainly because I already have so many unfinished fics I need to work on. Which is the exact same reason I gave for not doing it last year and I don't think I've actually worked on any of those stories in the meantime. I want to work on them but I feel completely uninspired and if I try to make myself write anyway it's like my brain doesn't work properly and I can't make the words come out like I want them too. It's really disheartening cos when I first started the main fic I'm working on I was so inspired for it. I was thinking about it all the time, the scenes popped into my head so easily and any spare moment I had I'd get my laptop out and just write. I even started carrying around a notebook for when ideas came to me and I didn't have access to my laptop, which happened often. The words just flowed, almost like the story already existed and I was just the one typing it up. But that's all come to a grinding halt.

I don't know. Part of me wonders if maybe I should post what I've got so far and hope that kicks my brain back into gear and encourages me to finish the rest. That might be the only way of solving this.
