Nanowrimo 2022: VOTE

Yea, that’s today …go do it


As predicted, I came through in the first part of the month. My current word count is: 19,773

Almost halfway done, and we’re less than 10 days in.  Feels pretty good.


I always feel the same way this time of year.


Maybe it won’t happen? Maybe I won’t crash and burn this year like I did the year before and the year before that. Maybe just maybe, I’ll be better this year.

lil ole me

I feel that way now, and I have no reason to believe I won’t go on feeling fine. Except for the promise that is the past. I have not felt fine every year from daylight savings time to my birthday (in March). This year should be no different.

It’s a long time to feel bad, and I can tell you it’s not fun. If I go dark this winter, know I am taking care of myself.

I thought I’d share some of the things that have helped me.

If this is a dark time of year for you, know first that you are not alone. If the holly jolly stuff seems foreign this year or every year, check out my posts from 2020 on the pillars of ADVENT: HOPE, LOVE, JOY, and PEACE.

Remember, if you need someone to talk to, I’m only a click away. Don’t be afraid to confide in your friends and family. They love you and want to help, even if they don’t know how.

Every year I plan a little something for myself to help me get through. This year I’m doing a self-care challenge in December. Follow me on Instagram if you’d like to join. @ewinglinsey.

If you want to support me but are unsure how I have a 1-question poll that you can access here

Thank you for continuing to read and help my business grow.

Don’t forget I’m going to be LIVE on YouTube all day Saturday. Whether you’re writing, reading, cleaning the house, or whatever you’re doing, I’d love for you to join me!

See you next week.
