So, hello again! Yes, I am still around. There have been other things taking my time and attention. For example, NaNoWriMo, which I have already thoroughly moaned, panicked, and attempted enthusiasm over.
Well, it’s going pretty well. I am over 11,000 words in my total word count on this project, which isn’t too shabby! And I still have more than 20 days to add to that total, so there is plenty of time to rise and conquer!
The amount of support I’ve received on social media about this daunting venture has been really wonderful. Feeling like I’m not tackling this alone, stuck in my house in front of the computer, trying to focus with yelling children and whining cat in the background, has given me a boost I definitely needed.
On other fronts — I have not had the amount of time I’ve wanted for writing the last couple days because children took priority. Muffin had an Early Intervention evaluation yesterday, which has been at least a month in the making. He has specialist appointments coming up, and all of this requires planning, and time, and paperwork, and all these pesky adulting tasks that I’d rather not engage in while NaNo is going on.
But since, unfortunately, the rest of my life did not seem to get the memo that I am not to be disturbed right now — all of this other stuff is also happening. The good news is that it isn’t constant, so I can still try to stick to the schedule I had planned for NaNo this week, and not fall too far behind. But I will re-send the memo: Everything else, go away, please. Just for a few weeks.
Apart from those of you who hang on my every word here and think I’m amazing. You’re welcome to bug me all you like.
Have a great day, moths!
