It’s Friday again. Hello Friday, how do you do? And how do you do?
In England, shops already have their Christmas decorations out. My mind is numb to it, because just a blink of an eye ago it was summer.
Oh, how I have lagged behind, folks.
Life is very difficult, and there are a lot of bends and twists along the way. Some are happy, and lots are bleak.
I have some big plans, though. Let us see if they come into fruition!
One of my large plans is to knuckle down for real this year and do NaNoWrimo like it’s meant to be done. I want to finish this novel once and for all, even if it is a shoddy mess by the time it is done.
SO, I pledge to write 30,000 words this November. The maths is very easy. That’s 1000 words a day. I think I can do it. I will also be taking off around 5 days of work this month, to focus solely on writing and planning and creating things that have been put on hold for way too long.
I have drafts of blog posts from FEBRUARY, that were meant to be published. I just didn’t have time! Life hit me like a tonne of bricks, and work is just an all-consuming, all-encompassing presence. It is stressing me out. Commuting for 2-3 hours a day, plus running my house, plus keeping mentally sane and maintaining relationships without being a selfish, paranoid arse, pardon my French, is making me fat, miserable, lonely and inadequate.
SOMETHING has got to give.
So this November, I am promising to make a new start. If my novel is finished properly by the end of December, I will have lived up to this new standard. But, first, 30,000 words in November.
Can I do this??
