For the last few months Camp NaNoWriMo has been going on. I wanted to participate in every months writing. Work on a new novel every month during Camp NaNoWriMo. However, for some reason, I just haven’t felt up to it. I’m not really sure why. I mean, I haven’t written anything in a while. I find it to be really upsetting. I’m disappointed in myself. :(

I mean, don’t get me wrong. I have literally a ton of ideas for novels. I have more then enough to work with! I just… haven’t felt like writing. I’ve been unmotivated I suppose. Either way, saying that just makes me feel like I’m coming up with excuses. I hate that. I feel loike I’m just being lazy when I’m not. :/ It’s not like that makes me feel any better about things.

Camp NaNoWriMo lasts for a few more months. So I’m really hoping or at least going to try and participate in at least one months worth of the writing. I want to try. I want to finish a novel! I did one novel before and finished. I didn’t win because I didn’t write enough words, but I still finished my novel. Yes, it needs a lot of work, I can admit to that. However, I am still really proud of that achievement. I want to do it again at some point! If I don’t keep trying, then I’ll never win and I want to win! It’s such an amazing challenge! One that I find to be very difficult, but I enjoy doing it.

I guess I’m just going to have to sit down and force myself to write. Write anything! I just need to get back into the habit of writing. Even if it’s just once or twice a week. I need to write. :O

    I actually thought about joining Camp NaNoWriMo this year but because of work and web projects (I actually have another one aside from the Little Dancer website ^^), I barely even have time to write in general (and this also includes blogging as well).

    I finished two novels from the regular NaNoWriMo months years ago, but after reading them back, I then end up losing interest in the novel itself because it sounded totally crap LOL.

    Everyday I always have the urge to write something. My hands can’t handle handwriting anymore and that’s just sad for me LOL. But I seriously need to write something, even if it’s not fiction-related. =^-^=

    I understand your annoyance at yourself so much. This is exciting how I’ve been when it comes to writing recently. It’s not that I don’t want to write, it’s just whenever I sit down to write nothing really happens and I feel like anything I do write wont be good enough. So I understand how you feel about being unmotivated.
    I’ve heard of NaNoWriMo, I think my sister did it one year and she actually completed it. I wanted to join a few years back but couldn’t think of anything to write about, but then university caught my attention and just reading about it in this post reminded me that I should really try that out at some point. Even if I didn’t win it would be something I could award myself for just for getting involved :) Best of luck with getting through the writers block (those dreaded beasts!) and hope you are well.
