So, today I pulled up my blog to see who’s stopped by, and I couldn’t believe the same post has been up since October 22. I thought about it, and realized that for the past week I’ve been looking at the same post, but I’ve been too busy to worry about it. Now that it’s the first day of the next month, however, I decided to figure out what went wrong.
|Yeah … I like to pose for the camera.|
I wrote my next a2z post, but forgot to tell my Blog Mistress about it, so it never got posted. Sheesh. And I should have had this post up and going yesterday morning, but I just plain ol’ forgot about it.
What kind of blogger am I??
The busy, pre-occupied kind. But who isn’t? That not a good reason to miss a blog post. Please accept my apologies.
I can hardly believe October is over. I’m looking forward to November, but have to admit that I’ll be lucky to accomplish anything writing related.
|My husband’s 30th birthday dinner.|
November is jam-packed full of fun at my house. We have three birthdays, an anniversary, Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and deer rifle season (though I don’t hunt and the hubs doesn’t have time, it’s still important to know because it increases the possibility of car accidents). November is also National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) – a contest where you have 30 days to write 50,000 words. I participated one year, but there’s just so much happening in November that I decided to preserve my sanity.
Looking back at October, it was a good month. I met my daily word goal (321 words/day), so I’m on track to finish my novel before the end of the year. I don’t actually think I’ll need all 70,000 words, but I’d like to play it safe. I also managed to submit a few articles. Squeezed in there someplace I also attended a writer’s conference.
Looking ahead to this month, I’d just like to maintain my sanity (see two paragraphs ago). I haven’t set the bar very high:
– Daily word count
– 2-3 articles
– Don’t dry out the turkey
Really, that’s it. I’ve got birthdays to celebrate, a week-long house guest for Thanksgiving, serious bargin shopping to do, and only 30 days in which to do it.
How about you guys – what are your plans for November 2011?
