Wednesday Night Decisions

I’m 100% torn. To make it worse, I’m torn three ways. I have some free time, so should I: A) work on my writing course – the plan for the novel I want to write for NaNo so need to send like tomorrow. B) Work on the stuff I said I’d help my family with for their business. Stupidly I said I should be able to get this done by the weekend or C) work on my novel Holiday.

Short term I’ll do C). I NEED to write 250 words for it today or I’ll get kicked off NovelPI. I have no intention of doing this just before NaNo starts. If I can’t do 250 words a day, how do I expect to do 1667?

1667? I must be mad. Again!

If I don’t do the writing course assignment I’ll be so mad with myself. I wanted to do the plan as my next assignment and get it back ‘marked’ (commented on anyway) before NaNo starts. That’s probably not going to happen. On the other hand, this is a family business I could do with working on. A business that could make me money. Maybe enough money to give up my second job. AGH. I don’t know what to do.

Probably blogging about it isn’t going to help. Neither is worrying about it instead of doing one or the other. Maybe I’ll toss a coin. Maybe I’ll just go to bed and worry about it in the morning.

I’ve just realised it’s nearly Friday. That can only mean Fiction Friday. But I’ve not even read through people’s stories from last week. And my google reader account? Well that’s sitting at like 350/400 unread blogs. How do I get myself into these things?

The good thing is my housemate goes away on Friday. I’ll have a week at home alone. I’ll try not to make too many plans next week, then come home after work and write and work on this family thing. Yay. A friend of mine was saying today how awesome it would be to live alone. It so would. Having said that, my problems don’t just lie within living with someone, they also lie within that nasty nasty site, Facebook. Or more specifically Bejeweled and Bubble Spinner. I’m addicted. Some people have alcohol, some drugs. Me? I have Facebook games. And I’m not even that good at them 😦

Ok, I’ll stop moaning about how horrific my life is now. I’ll go and write. And while I’m writing, I’ll decide what to do next… Or maybe I’ll decide when I’ve finished writing. Either way…

  1. I just have to tell you that I can relate to this and I’m a novelpi fail-ey pants. Also, I’m glad you came through and you even pushed a bit to get 328. I’m proud of you and I know you can keep going. Also, you’re inspiring me to not give up entirely and for that I’m most grateful for. Thanks!

  2. Oh, and I’m also addicted to being social on twitter and facebook games. I’m not very good either but they are so relaxing in some weird way for me, not to mention, my in-laws like me to play Farmville with them and I’ve had fun getting to know them through thier farms. Silly, right? I’ve stopped a bit recently and they mentioned that they missed me so I started up again. eek! So, not a good time to do that.
    Good Luck.

    • At least you’re getting something positive from it! The only thing I get from it is beaten 😦

      Thank you for this encouragement, like I said before it really helps. I’m glad you’re still writing and haven’t given up completely. At the end of the day NovelPI is just something to push us, even though you’ve not made it to the end, if it gave you that push originally, and you’re still going, it was worth it!
