I hate work...

And that's all I'm going to say on that subject, else I'll go into an incoherent rant.

I registered for Nano, only I haven't written anything. Nothing. Yesterday, I had this great plot idea, only when I got home from work, it didn't seem so great because I just couldn't write it down. Not even as a note!

I've been telling myself that this means I'm obviously not a writer, and yet when I read over some of the fanfiction I've written previously, I amaze myself. Maybe it's all the stress I've been under since before summer, when I found out I was going to get laid off--and it just kept getting worse and worse. Only, I've never really felt stressed; I haven't exactly been overexerting myself.

Probably, it's just a minor setback, and as soon as I'm able to pull all-nighters instead of going to bed at the decent hour of 9 or 10, I'll probably be back in the swing of things. I seem to be able to write more while sleep deprived.

M.A.

Ugh, I know, I always get great ideas at work but I'm too busy with the "patrons" to write anything down. I thought working in a library would be peaceful but it's really quite exhausting.

What is Nano? I've heard so many people mention it but I have no clue...

Nano

You'll find everything you need to know about it on that site, but basically it's a thing to write fifty thousand words in thirty days. I've already missed seven days because of my procrastinatory nature.
