#NaNoWriMo2020 & Other Thoughts.

So, it’s been a while… again.

I still haven’t been myself and in the past ten months it’s been a lot harder to get back into my writing than I anticipated. There had once been a time when I turned to my writing as a way of coping through sad times in my life, and that tactic hasn’t worked or come with ease for me this time around.

But, I’m here and I’m committed to trying to pull myself back into focus.

Though my past three years with attempting NaNo has been a fail in some way or another, for varying reasons, I feel I need something to motivate me to write something. Even if it’s only ten words a day. I say a number that low because if writer’s block doesn’t take me out the game, my work schedule will surely give writer’s block a run for it’s money.

Anyway, I’ve decided on what I want to write. Story title, genre (though said genre has become my least favorite to write as of late), and I am about 81% sure that the task is one I can finish. I’m at least 75% confident that it will be good, considering it will be my first full project in nearly a year.

This is just complete honesty with myself, not my usual self doubt.

Are you participating in NaNo this year? Would you like to be accountability buddies?

In other news, I am still open and welcome to any other poets and writers who would like their work shared through MyPenWritesNice.com

I do not have a large audience, but I feel I have an audience that consistently shows up and supports when I share. And, I’m always looking for other great writers to support. You can tag me here, as well as on Instagram @MyPenWritesNice .

I hope that you’ve all been well. I hope that this is the last major break I take, as my site and my art are truly things I care about, and I hope that you are safe and blessed during these wild times.

Happy reading & writing!

xoxo, Cortney.

  1. I want to participate this year… but life. That and my own self-doubt coupled with good ol’ writer’s block threaten to hold me back. I’m gonna give a soft “yes” though because I really do want to give it a shot! I look forward to seeing what you come up with. Nothing that I’ve ever read from you has been anything less than great!
