Every year, in late October, I look over at my laptop and think, “this will be the November when I full participate in NaNoWriMo.”
And every year, I am wrong.
This year is no exception. I got as far as printing off my basic plot summary. And it’s still sitting on my desk, where I left it on October 29th.
My sons birthday is October 30th. Halloween is October 31st. For two days my entire world is full of chaos. I have a party that I’ve planned for two weeks ahead of time, and a fun day of trick or treating that I host every year for my son, his friends, and his friends families. I spend most of October up to my elbows in party-planning for the final two days of the month.
By November 1st, I’m so tired that I’d prefer to just sleep during the entire month instead of engage my brain and write.
Maybe I’ll create my own, personal NaNoWriMo, but during a different month. Does that count??
