I was genuinely attempting National Novel Writing Month this year with a brand new idea involving a steampunk version of the Lohengrin legend. Then, a freak accident occurring exactly two weeks ago landed me in the Emergency Room with a broken ankle. I’ve gotten to wear a cam boot for the better part of two weeks and out of work. I gave up on Nano with the overwhelming depression coupled with the staggering feeling of being useless. I’ve spent the time idling away on Internet surfing, moping, and video games.
Meanwhile, I have my second story for my Creative Writing class due and I am hurriedly trying to finish it as well as trying to find a way to solve the initial problems. Though, this third attempt gave me two previous story ideas I might try at a later day. But it always fun to dapple in one’s own fantasy world, is it not?
The poetry I mentioned posting is at a standstill. I don’t have the energy or the will to format it properly. I’m feeling itchy and uncomfortable and annoyed but such is the way when I am in a rut.
My foot hurts me constantly and I just want to go back to work. But I fear that I won’t be able to for longer than expected.
But I’ve been writing, whatever little progress it is. On my main project, I’ve reached over 46,000 words which I realize isn’t much when you think to pass Nano you have to reach 50,000. But I am determined, as always.
