NaNoWrimo Ad Honorem

Here we are again, just a week away from November. And you all know what that means, right?

It’s NaNoWrimo Time!

(That’s National Novel Writing Month, by the way.)

And that means it’s time for me to write something about how much I want to join, followed by a post about how I can’t do it this year because __________, maybe next.

The cruel truth is this will (probably) never happen.  I don’t think I enjoy writing enough to follow through, and I don’t have a creative idea in my head.  In my continuing pursuit of herd thinning, I’m giving up my dream of creative writing just as I did knitting and cleaning house.  Only important and meaningful endeavors for me from now on.

However, I do want to get back to blogging.  While I love my new job(s), it’s taking me some time to adjust to the increased energy input/output.  Non-profit work is just plain crazy. And exhausting. But it’s a good crazy exhausting, so it’s all good. And now that I’m getting in the groove, it’s time to get back to life.

So, in honor of NaNoWrimo, I’m dedicating  the month of November to my blog.  One post a day for 30 days. Considering that I haven’t had enough to say lately to constitute one post a month, this will be a challenge.  I foresee a lot of b.s. in my future… just like a bonafide author!

  1. lol i just looked up your blog to remind you that it’s nano month – again! and you beat me to it 🙂
    i, like you, start off with great intentions which dwindle almost immediately. oh well.

      1. Oh, and my kitty is hanging in there. Thank you for asking! As I suspected, her face is permanently disfigured, but she seems unphased by what happened. This hasn’t stopped me from waking in the middle of the night to check on her, or rushing to her first thing in the morning to make sure she’s still breathing. Now that I think about it, she’s doing a lot better than I am! 🙂

  2. Ha! I decided to skip the ill-fated promises this year and embrace my defeatism. If I can’t manage the simple task of writing just one short post a day for one month, then I need to give up blogging all together. My recent performance has been pitiful!
