It is the eighth day of National Novel Writing Month or NaNoWriMo and I haven’t joined in… yet. I love the motivation that comes from fellow writers during this period but I’m exhausted. I’ve self published 5 kindle books this year and spend a lot of time marketing the books as well. I’ve been focused on learning the ropes of Author promotion on social media and have pushed myself to interact more with people in person too. My first international romance, My Singapore Fling, was written during NaNoWriMo 2016. The Cheesecake Thief & Other Stories was written in May this year as my author friends and I pursued another novel writing month.
So, NaNoWriMo is tempting but I’m being lazy. Or maybe I deserve a little break. But whenever I’m not writing, I feel guilty. And that, my friends, is the author’s life!
