Day 15 - Running out of S'Mores

Now that I have reached the half-way point, I am running out of steam.  The plot has twisted and I'm not sure where they are going.  I admit that I'm getting tired of writing "The Secret" and I don't want to spend any more time on it.  This is where writing gets hard, when the author wants to give up and needs to keep going.  It's the tough spots and rough spots that will prevent us.  It's like getting sand in your swimsuit at the beach, or a sunburn before going down a water slide - both are ouch situations.  I really just want to get this finished.  I have many others thing to get done, packing for moving August 1st and finishing my job. 

I just need to stick it out and continue writing this novel, hoping that it will get better and I won't be so darn frustrated with it.  I agree to finish this novel by July 31st and I still intend to.  I am just in need of some encouragement.  I'm possibly in need of some s'mores to finish this Camp NaNoWriMo. 

Day 15 - Word count: 26,004


  1. I think everyone has these thoughts around the halfway mark. Read through what you wrote so far and push ahead.

  2. You are doing great Krista. I do not think I could ever write a whole novel in a month. Hang in there and keep up the good work!
