Oh life … why do you always get in the way of my NaNoWriMo intentions? Well, she just does. And, there’s nothing wrong with my life. I had a birthday road trip. Then a birthday party – and I’ll have another on Sunday. Then a friend asked me to perform a piece with him in his show this weekend. Then I learned that by a complete fluke of fortune I have qualified for semi-finals in the local poetry slam. And, I have a costume to finish for a dance show on Sunday. So, lots of good things are happening, they just happen to be taking me away from Camp NaNoWriMo. So, I will keep writing – I’ve been averaging a few words a day – and something will come of this project. In the meantime, I am not going to get too upset about not meeting my Camp NaNoWriMo goal (again), because I have written something every day. I tweeted a lot on my road trip. I’ve put some poems to paper. I have been doing something artistic every day this month even though my focus hasn’t been NaNo writing. I am looking forward to the end of next month – that is when the bulk of my pressing commitments will be complete. I will keep writing – it’s what I do. I’m even contemplating a Monday blog post twice a month – I’m thinking of calling it Magic Mondays and it will be full of all the crazy wonderful lovely things I have discovered in the previous two weeks. It could be a review of a children’s book. It could be an essay about art and love and life. I don’t know if I’m ready for that commitment just yet though. I think I’m going to take the summer off – I’ve already got an awesome week in Las Vegas planned with my favourite fella! I’ll see what the fall holds. In the meantime, I will continue plugging at this NaNoWriMo project until Tuesday!
Be Lovely to Each Other,
