#NaNoWriMo 2018 Begins!

by Lillian Csernica on November 1, 2018


Oh my stars and garters. I’ve been going like a maniac for days now. Friday–Halloween party. Saturday–trip through a Haunted House. Sunday–groceries, laundry, pizza, as well as prepping for the Kick Off Party. Monday–the Kick Off party! Tuesday–taking John to tae kwon do. And of course Wednesday was Halloween!

People ask me how I get any writing done. It’s simple. I do it whenever I get the chance. On Tuesday I was sitting there with my notebook on my knee writing while John was out on the mat with his tae kwon do class. At this point I’m busy typing in everything I wrote during #nanoprep in October. Still, I must keep writing every day. That’s the deal.


We’re going to EuCon again this month. John is once again in charge of the Art Bus. This means five days on the road. It will be a real challenge making sure I hit the daily quota when my brain is fried from driving for hours or working the con. I’ve already proven I can write in my sleep, so I might need that skill again and soon!

Then there’s John’s birthday and Thanksgiving! The excitement never stops!

I’m going to write. Every day. A whole new book.

To all my fellow WriMos out there, I wish you all the best as you embark on your journeys of creativity.

  1. Great post! So encouraging for us NaNos. Thanks much! Love the part about writing in your sleep. Whoo hoo!!! Write on sister.

  2. Went to the Kick-Off Party here in town – thus far, we’ve posted a collective total of 60,000 words, so between us – one whole book’s worth of verbiage!

  3. I relate so much, Lillian.
    October was crazy at work for me (writing? What’s writing?) and November had a couple of commitments (one was a travel) that occupied part of my time.
    In this moment, I’m still bahind… and I’ll probably lose tomorrow to working overtime, but hey! I haven’t lost my hopes yet 😉

    This must be one of the hardest NaNo I’ve done, but I’m still enjoying it.
    How about you?
