Monday Musings: NaNoWriMo

Posted on Updated on

NaNoWriMo2015When I posted my planned November reading I was completely forgetting the fact that it was November. Strange, I know. But I have signed up for NaNoWriMo again this year, and though I’m running woefully behind I am making an attempt to get as much written as I can this month. Naturally, this means that I will not be doing nearly as much reading this month as I had planned. Had I actually remembered what month it was, I wouldn’t have planned such a big list.

This also means that, unfortunately, I won’t be around here as much this month as I would like. Since I won’t be reading as much I won’t have many reviews to post, nor the time to post them. I am going to make an attempt to still post a Top Ten Tuesday each week. Earlier this year I promised myself I would post at least once a week. I’ve been doing a really good job of getting in 2-3 posts per week the last few months, but this month is busy. Top Ten Tuesday is a good way to keep at least one post a week.

Also, if you’ve tagged me for an award or tagged post that I have not followed up on, I’m very sorry. I had every attention of doing all of them but just haven’t had the time to write those posts in addition to my regular reviews. The closer we get to December the more hours I’m putting in at the bookstore, and the less time I have to do the things I would like to do, such as post to my blog. Please know that I appreciate being included in all those tags and awards, but it may be a while before I would have time to participate in any of that (at least until after the new year).

If anyone is interested in my NaNoWriMo progress, I do post word counts to Twitter. However I am so far behind at this point I don’t know if I’ll make the 50,000 words. However, maybe I’ll at least get my novel actually finished. That’s an even better goal. I’m hand wriiting it this year as opposed to typing because I have a very unreliable laptop, and a notebook and pen and go with me anywhere much easier than a laptop anyway. Also, if anyone is interested, here’s a few things I learned from NaNoWriMo last year.

Now I’m going to go back to writing my Top Ten Tuesday so it’s ready to post tomorrow!
