Today, WordPress notified me that I registered my blog two years ago. Really!? Two years? I had no idea it had been so long.
I’ve probably spent more time not writing than I have writing here, let’s be honest. I enjoy the blogging community a lot. I enjoy my “internet friends,” since I have so many and have been so lucky to be able to meet so many people because of the wonders of the Internet.
I’ve started and closed who knows how many blogs, created and deleted YouTube channels, but I always come back to the community. I’m obviously not a daily v/blogger, but I enjoy participating in communities with people who are.
All sappiness aside, I guess I should update you on my NaNo journey. I can already tell you I’m not going to get very far. Between being sick the first week of November, starting a brand new job on Monday, my birthday on Tuesday, family health being what it is, and my desire to get out and experience the world instead of from behind a screen, let’s just say November hasn’t been the best month so far for writing.
I turned 28 on Tuesday, the 8th. Election day. I was born on election day and this is the first year that my birthday has fallen on it again. I have many feelings about the state of our country as of now, and if you care at all, you’re welcome to follow me on Twitter. I’ve been very vocal about it all there.
I’m not sad about falling behind on NaNoWriMo, though. I am learning new things, meeting new people, and still taking the time to “check out” from the digital world so that I can enjoy time with my family and friends.
I do have some free time today, though, so I’m going to sit down and write some more. It’s therapeutic and is helping me develop a good vocabulary. I’m not sure if I’ll continue the same story I started or start something new. Guess I’ll see how I feel.
How about you? How is your writing going? I’d love to hear from fellow NaNoWriMo participants.
Until next time! ❤
