NaNoWriMo Postponement

I am not utterly giving up. This year, November was just a bad month. I started the month by being out of town for the weekend and having a VERY long drive home on the first. I went in to work and discovered that I would be working two jobs because one entire department was out. They ended up being out for two weeks. One is back part time and for the third week I’m still backing her up. We don’t know if the other person in the department will be coming back at all.

The increased work load led to me feeling brain dead after work each day. It was getting harder and harder to do anything.

To put it into perspective, I’m a serious book worm. I can easily read a book in a day or two and still have time for other hobbies and a t.v show or two. But since the beginning of November, I’ve been so mentally tired that I haven’t liked most books I’ve opened up and tried to read. The only to I managed to get my head into and enjoy have been Unseen Academicals and Imager. Even attempting to reread books I know I loved proved impossible. (I always take a book to work for lunchtime reading.)

So while I still have ideas and plans for my NaNoWriMO project, I know I’m not going to get a chance to really write properly until Thanksgiving day and that 4 day weekend.

The weekend after that I fly home for 10 days. This will also give me time to write as my parents do work and I will have time by myself, isolated in the mountians, that I will need to fill with something. So I will write.

I will probably also play on the computer more than a little bit. And work out on her working treadmill. Seeing as mine is so dead.

So I won’t consider it a complete failure. I will also hope that next November doesn’t turn into a work nightmare as this one has. I look forward to finishing what I have started and to writing something new next year.

  1. Sounds like you had a rough month! That’s been my story quite a few years in a row. It’s kind of still my story, but I am participating anyway.

    I am in the process of moving, broke as can be, and am working in two different departments this month myself. I lost my internet and am relegated to writing at lunch on pen and paper. I am so far behind, I don’t know if the week I have off (Thanksgiving until the next Wednesday) will be enough to help me catch up, but I’m still in the fight. It’s never going to be an opportune moment for me to do this, and I promised myself I would give it my all this year.

  2. This is why I’ll focus on it during my vacation in December. I still want to tell that story. I may not be able to catch up this month. I just won’t let it stop me.
