NaNoWriMo started slow. I did no planning and finally decided to write my family history – a subject I enjoy a lot. It is also a subject I wanted to ensure was accurate which lead me into some very interesting but very deep rabbit holes.
Last weekend I got my flu shot which caused me to experience two days of dizzy spells. Then last Friday hubby and I both got our COVID Moderna boosters. We both ran fevers, mine accompanied extreme joint pain and a miserable headache for two days.
Long story short, I am giving myself a break. I am not pushing for 50,000 words in 30 days. I am writing, but this year, the deadline has to be of my own making.
Sometimes you just have to throw in the towel.
