(Funny side note: as I was typing that, I had part of the Counting Crows singing “Long December”… sorry, I thought it was actually quite hilarious so I had to write it.)
Well… it’s Friday, which is always a good day. Alas, NaNo is NoMo and I can honestly say that I am actually disappointed in the fact that I just let it go… I started ok, but after a couple of bumps, I just stayed stalled (I guess a good comparison would be a race car driver getting into a Daytona or Indianapolis 500 race and then blowing the engine before even completing a tenth of the race). I think I ended up derailing myself once I got a day or two behind… that and trying to do a lot of the mileage at work (which, after staffing changes REALLY killed those chances) were not helped at all by the fact that I had exressed concerns before the project started (translation: the philosophy works – Whether you think you can or you can’t, you’re right.)
But, it is a new month, and new goals to tackle. According to my schedule (yes, I drafted a schedule back in September… kind of a guide to some projects) most of December is intended for drafting some notes, so I have a perfect starting point for my 1,000 word a day goal – my current NaNoWriMo WIP.
So, while my 2006 NaNoWriMo efforts may RIP, there is still life for the story… If you’ll excuse me, it is time for me to raise the dead… and if we’re good, maybe teach it some new steps
(Cue Gene Wilder and “the Monster” for “Puttin’ on the Ritz” to take it away)
