Nano Post # 2

It’s been two whole weeks, fifteen whole days since the start o NanoWriMo. I’ve been trying my hardest to write every single day. But let’s face it, life sometimes gets in the way. And other times, I sit at my computer and stare at a blank screen waiting for words to magically appear. And still, there are days where the words never cease.

Within these two weeks I have crammed in some great writing sessions. Turning out pages I must say I’m proud of. Though my story isn’t where I want it to be, so I’m not going to share it with you … yet. But I will share something else I’ve been working on. A play list of all the music that has inspired me or has crept its way into my hopeful book.
