Sedoretu is pretty much a bust. I can't get it moving the way I want to, Maria doesn't want to talk, Natasha doesn't know enough, Steve is being obstreperous, and Bucky's still finding his fee.

I'm struggling. I have for the entire month, and all the more because there's really nobody to talk Steve/Maria with anymore, and nobody who wants to. (It's never going to get anything more in canon, and I don't have anyone to bounce off regarding her character, which is most of what I want.)

I'm two days away from going into Camp NaNo, with the goal of writing 50K to Shadowkin: Seabirthed. Carlos is part-Hispanic, Australian, half-Shadowkin, and struggling with the changes to his life - his mother dead, his father remarried, his stepmother expecting, his grandparents hostile. He's solitary and bullied at school, and it's only when he stands up for someone else, and she reaches back out to him that things start getting better. (No, she's not the romantic interest; for starters, they're about 12 years old, and she's the protag of the next book.)

I've started his story at least five times, maybe as many as ten times.

But I feel like I have nothing to tell, that nobody would be interested in my stories, that even if I managed to finish a manuscript, I could never find anyone to buy any story I'd want to tell in any case.
