So this is how Nano went...
For three weeks I struggled to make the deadlines, and through house sitting where I had to travel an two to three hours per day write snuggle a cat, go home, sleep. It was most strenuous and I of course fell behind in my word count obligation. But I still tried and there I was at almost three weeks and 31,245 words. Then I got sick and over the last three days really sick, I haven't been out of the house for the last two and all the ingredients I have left in my house is for nothing but pancakes (not that i'm complaining.) So so closely to the goal I quit, which at this moment I don't really protest to so much because I have been missing one this I love so badly that I had to keep myself from even doodling about it all month. Yup, I refrained myself from any sort of costuming or creative crafts. It was terrible. D:
I did however learn something about myself. I CAN buckle down and force myself to write even if I don't feel like it. Hot chocolates at Delaneys are superior to Starbucks. And sometimes giving up is okay. You don't have to be good at everything you try and you certainly aren't going to be. So choosing to quit is okay once and a while, sometimes its better not to push yourself too hard. I really enjoyed the experience and donated the some money that I was going to use on my present to myself if I finished it. Maybe one day i'll get back to it because I think the story really had some good plot going on in there.
Thirdly, I missed this so much, the planning and sketch books filled with designs and plans, the little test scraps of fabric and knitting until your writs hurt because you didn't realize just how many episodes in a row you've been watching of Doctor Who until you can't knit anymore 'cause it hurts; but you keep on watching anyway. And you guys because i've hardly been on here for at least a month. You bunch are a fabulous group of supportive people!
