Life and this Thing called NaNoWriMo


Ever since I started this blog I have posted at some point, either in October or November, that I am doing this thing called National Novel Writing Month or NaNoWriMo for short. This is that post, though it is a little late. If you don't know what NaNoWriMo is, it is done during the month of November and you have to reach 50,000 words by the end of the month.

I had been working on my story and had reach 21,762 words when this thing called life caught up with me and sort of pulled me away from my writing. To put it more accurately, I had to go into work earlier one day and then work late, and then I had to do homework for the online class that I am taking at the moment.

And on top of that I came down with an annoying cold. When it first showed up on Wednesday morning, other then having the obvious runny nose, I felt fine. But by the time I got home from work it felt like I had been run over by a truck. Thursday morning, I ran off to class with a headach, a wattery eye, sinus pressure around my right eye and a runny nose. While I felt miserable and was trying hard not to fall asleep in class, because the teacher turns the lights off so that we can see the projector screen better. I was able to do that out taking pseudophedrine before I left the house.

While I am pretty much all caught up with homework for all of my classes I could start working on my story again, but I am currently lacking the motivation to start writing again. Since Yavi is in town for Thanksgiving I want to spend time with her as well and not staring at my computer screen all day.

Since Thanksgiving is on Thursday I know that I won't be getting any writing done then and Friday is out of the question for writing as well, because it will be mainly devoted to watching the four new episodes of "Gilmore Girls." After spewing all of that I think it is safe to say that I am done with NaNoWriMo for this year. Even though I didn't reach 50,000 words, I am planning to continue working on my story, but we will see how that goes. When my mom asked if I was going to let any of them read what I had written, I told her that she would know if the family was allowed to read it if it was printed out and sitting on the table. And that if I didn't want anyone to read it that it would stay on my computer. Since I don't ever really like anything that I write, I haven't decided on whether or not my family will be allowed to read my story or not.
