I hate writing these posts. Writing these posts means that I am giving up the fight for NaNoWriMo, and it seems too often that this ends up being the case. Honestly, I am not sure why I expected to finish this year. My life has been so off balance that scheduling in the writing time has been more trouble than expected. November came too quickly. I wasn’t prepared. My writing practice has taken what seems to be an overly long vacation. And now November’s ending already. There are so many things that I see on my agenda for the new year. One is finding a sense of balance. The past few months have been something of a living, breathing hell for me just due to the lack of balance brought on by a variety of reasons. And honestly, this month if I had actually focused on Nanowrimo, I think it would have ended up becoming an escape mechanism from the craziness that is my life. Good? In theory. Problem is, part of what I need to find balance is to face the issues that I’m facing head on.
And I’m a little afraid of what that means. I don’t typically get too personal in this blog, because that’s not the point of this little corner of the interwebs. This page is supposed to be dedicated to cool stuff. Like Music! and Feminism! RiOtS! Revolution! Art! Kickass women! Etc! and as of late it hasn’t quite been living up to that (with the exception of a few articles). I’m also not going to start getting personal now.
But suffice it to say that the end of this year is bringing with it change. And I aim to make it through these changes.
To all of those who finished nanowrimo this year, I salute you! I hope to follow you next year! I plan on bringing myself up to a daily writing habit and getting past my biggest block which is the simple act of starting. I’m making good ground with an almost daily journal writing habit (weekends sometimes get left out) and I’d like to bring it past the journaling and into writing about other stuff, which should hopefully end up on here.
Wish me luck. And hopefully, we’ll see each other soon.
