NaNoWriMo 2016 turned into my worst one yet. I managed to write 254 words, then I just couldn’t seem to get anything else done. let’s look at the reasons.
I had very little privacy. I can’t write upstairs, because the TV is on, and I’m never alone in the room. I couldn’t write in the kitchen, because it was a high traffic area. And whenever I was able to go down there, it was only for a short time while my daughter was at school.
I worked more than usual this month. I had less private time at home. And if I had time at night, I was usually too tired to concentrate on writing.
Getting in the Zone
Because of the first two issues, I was unable to get into the zone. I couldn’t concentrate like I wanted to.
So, this was not a very good NaNoWriMo. But really, I prefer to write without the pressure. And if I can get my own space and be able to go in there at any time to write, that’ll allow me to relax and write like I want to.
How was your NaNoWriMo? Did you succeed? Let me know in the comments.
