I am not doing too well with the NaNoWriMO.
I started strong. 2,088 words on day one. Then nothing.
Instead I ran hills Tuesday (up this brutal route in an area of town called Mount Adams). Literally, one guy ran us up about three miles of incline across this convoluted route. Of course this also meant three miles downhill . . . but still.
I thought I would get caught up on Wednesday, but that was a no-go as well. I could not take the clutter that I built up over the past two weeks in my kitchen. So, I cleaned.
And Thursday saw more running.
Today, Friday, I thought about just writing, but I stepped on the scale. We’ve been getting some pretty awesome free food at work. I’m tipping the scale a bit.
And I’m kind of in a bad mood and stressed now. Working out, especially a long swim, always helps to shake things out.
So, perhaps I’ll write this weekend, or not.
What are the most creative ways you relieve stress, or better yet, avoid certain tasks?
