The month of November is considered to be National Novel Writer's Month or NaNoWriMo. For those that participate in this, the object of this is to write 50,000 words in 30 days. That turns out to be 1,666 words a day for 30 days, 2,380 if you don't write on Saturday or Sunday. One writer I know last year wrote her 50,000 words in 2 weeks. That is 3,5571 words a day.
Last year I participated in NaNoWriMo and did not write on Sundays, which was about 2,000 words a day. There were days I accomplished it, some days I wrote more while others I failed drastically. Having a goal of 2k words a day is not realistic for me. It kept me super stressed out and depressed with the though of not being an author or a good enough writer.
This year I have decided not to participate in NaNoWriMo, but instead I will write when I write, just as I have all year. As a disabled veteran, a disabled man, a fully no job, sits at home person, I do not always have the motivation to write or the desire to do much. I watch tv or play on my computer or phone when I'm not asleep. My first published book which turned out to be a 74 page book took me almost 2 years to write. I had to not only write it, but grow into it. My writing style is much different than, I would say, every other author out there.
I don't have much to say. I just wanted you all to know that I am not doing NaNo this year.
Please check out my book.
Depression is something that most people experience at one point or another. During this time of life, life can be hard to live. Some people attempt to hide it from others, while others have trouble coping with life situations and have trouble with everyday tasks such as personal self-care.
This book will show how the author had gone through depression for many years and teaches how he allowed his faith in God to conquer that depression in his own life. These teachings are meant to help others overcome their own depression while letting them know they are not alone in their struggle.
