First — how the hell is it November already? This year has flown by. They say it only gets worse as you get older — and I believe it. This year has been a crazy year — full of major life changes, challenges and risks. LBR has definitely suffered as a result, but I’m looking forward to getting it back on track.
Speaking of LBR suffering — I’ll be participating in NaNoWriMo again this year, meaning reviews will be rather slow this month. I anticipate some cookbook reviews (because I need writing fuel, obviously) but I’m trying to limit my novel consumption so I can focus on production.
If you’re unfamiliar with NaNoWriMo, it’s essentially a month from hell where you write a 50,000 word novel…in a month. That’s about 1,667 words a day. This is (I believe) my sixth year participating, and I’ve only ever finished once. I usually peter out at the 20,000-30,000 word point because I fall behind. I’m hoping this time will be different, but I’ve also lost the shiny eyed, bright, optimistic attitude about it 😉
Wish me luck! Who else is participating?
