NaNoWriMo 2017 is in full swing. I am plugging way fairly well as I have written every day for seven days and have written over 23,000 words to date. That is a little over 3,000 words a day.
I do it this way every time and here is why. Something could possibly come up that will stray me from my word count path. So I
over prepare just in case.
My current work is called ‘Rock Bottom in Seventeen Months’ and is about my struggle with addiction, alcoholism, and trying to be a mother.
So far I have had to stop writing twice to go have a good sob about all the devastation I left in my wake.
Your eyes held shadows of demons
With their dark and sultry gaze
The faint hint of cruelty
Flecked inside their distant ways
Some would call you callous
Others might call you cruel
But I just called you hollow
Like someone I once knew
We passed on the street last night
Eyes locked long and bruised
We both knew the pain we caused
We both knew how we were used
