I don't believe in writer's block.
However, I do believe there are things that interfere with our writing if we let them. And sometimes, even if we don't.
For example, life tends to throw the enexpected at us when we least expect it, or when we least can afford to be distracted.
Pressures at work or with relationships can also interfere. Or, the fact that we've taken on too much.
And what about health stuff? Allergies, hormones (for us females) and even the amount of sleep we get can take a toll on our writing.
Sometimes our friends and family can be hinderances. Even our own attitudes can de detrimental.
As we begin to plan for NaNoWriMo, take a few minutes to think about things you can deal with now that will make the month of November easier.
Can you prepare some meals in advance and freeze them or perhaps bargain with your spouse or kids to take on some extra chores. And really, if things get a little dusty during November, who cares.:-)
Planning your novel in advance will help also. The first time I took part in NaNoWriMo, I did no planning and had to take a couple days about halfway in to do that planning.
Also, check your schedule now and see what things you can either move to Oct. or Dec.
Thanksgiving is the biggest distraction during November as we write. Is there another family member who would just love to have everyone over this year? Or, if everyone does gather at your place, how about having them bring parts of the meal That way you won't have to do everything.
Anyone else have any tips to make things easier?
