Mandaris Moore

National Novel Writer Month Logo.

This year, I'm doing NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) because my daughter is doing it as well. I want to show her that I can put my heart into something and follow through with it.

The problem is that I've gotten out of the habit of writing and it's very hard to focus on something like this when there are crazy things like the election, covid, social unrest1, and everything else going on in this world.

Still, I'm going to continue doing the best that I can even though I'm a loooooong way from finishing this thing.

Sometimes it's hard for me sit down and get in the mindset for it.

One other thing that I'm going is writing more in my Day One journal. I really want to keep a good streak going on but sometimes it gets a little weird.
