Writing, NaNoWriMo and Chronic Pain

There is nothing else I would rather do than write. Unfortunately, I’m not to the point where writing pays any bills. Some days, I can eek out a blog post or some writing between calls while doing my day job. But some days it’s just too busy.

Once I get off from work, I tend to nap especially on days that my pain level has been high. On those days, once I wake up I try to do housework type things or just rest depending on how bad the pain is. The pain usually makes it hard to think so I have a hard time getting any writing done in the afternoons and evenings.

Despite this, I try and do NaNoWriMo every November. This year, I’ve only written about 3500 words, but it’s good to be trying to write on a daily basis again. I’m not working on a new story but instead working on the 2nd draft of my already finished novel. I’m really hoping to have the 2nd draft finished before the end of the year so I can start finding beta readers.

Someday I’ll be a published author. Chronic pain just makes it harder to try and get the words out.
