gridlore: Old manual typewriter with a blank sheet of paper inserted. (Writing)

I've given up on my NaNoWriMo project. Simple fact is I got derailed by some health issues and the election. Also, I keep trying to make myself write science fiction, and it's really not my genre for writing. I may try my hand at urban fantasy. Without the pressure of meeting a 50,000 words in a month.

For those of you who paid into the Istanbul fund with the promise of being Tuckerized, I'll be in contact about the new project.

Well, y' know, you've got LOTS of company on that.  I don't even pay attention to “NaNoWriMo” or the “fic prompt” communities - if I were a teenager of boundless imagination and equally unlimited free time, that would be different, and that's the target audience.

We have lives.

Damage vs distraction - from a strictly teleological standpoint, it doesn't matter WHY the mental resources aren't being applied to writing 50,000 words in a month, what matters is that they're not.

I myself have neurological depression and ADD, plus a full-time job, so it'd be stupid to even attempt that and I never have.
