Week one of Nano is now well behind me and still other priorities stand in my way. Does this mean that I just can't cut it as a writer? Will I always find other things to do rather than getting down to writing?
I remember stories about Will Self getting up at 5 am in order to write. He'd write until 7 am and then get ready and head into work. That's commitment for you. Do I have that commitment? It seems not at this point in time. Come on Angela. I chivvy myself up. There's still time if you put your mind to it.
I browse the local Chester region statistics. I am 38 out of 50. That's good and bad. It's bad as I am a long way behind, but good that in fact that are others like me and some who have written fewer words than I have. I'm not sure how I feel about that, but at least I'm not in position 50 - that might jolt me into action.
What's ironic about all this is that I have probably written more words in this blog explaining my lack of progress than I have for Nano. It's a funny old world.
