Life Lately - NaNoWriMo

I do a lot of these rambling types of posts, but I think this is my first Life Lately post.

I've known about NaNoWriMo since 2010 when a lot of my friends from the Fanfiction community were looking at writing Original Novels. It's something I've wrestled with and thought about doing since then but never actually committed to it. Well, after seeing Chelsea's posts about it I decided to sign up for real!

Apparently I'm just going all out this year.

I have an idea I've been sitting on and I've been working on getting some of the planning done so I can just start writing on November 1st. That means a lot of things will be going on outside my blogging life and I'm going to try to post only 1-2 times a week which I've kind of been doing for the last few months anyway with my design business taking off. I got some more exciting leads from that too, so to say this girls is all smiles and on the verge of overwhelmed is an understatement.

I know I can do this, it's just been about four years since I've written more than a blog post or one-shot (shorter than a short story). I also tend to get carried away with the visual side and will have little time to play with that side if I want to finish the 50,000 in 30 days. That's 1,667 words a day but hopefully I'll have days where I write more than that so I can get ahead.

I also have the reading challenge(s) I'm participating in and have some projects coming up for HEA Ink.

All exciting and then there's the fact that I think I broke my pinky toe. Swelling, bruising and pain like I've never felt after kicking my toe are all present. I was just telling someone the other day that anytime I plan to start the C25K something comes up and voila! That just puts my C25K on the back burner for 6 weeks and it looks like it might all just work out.

I made some super cute green eggs and ham for a baby shower this weekend. The hostess went all out and it was such a cute party!

What's new in your life lately?!

  1. Oh no! I am sorry to hear about your toe :(

  2. I hope your toe is okay :( I seem to have the same issue with weird stuff like that happening every time I decide to start c25k too! So excited you're doing NANOWRIMO... I'm still undecided, though having three days isn't much time to decide :)

  3. oh your poor toe! hope it feels better soon. and yay for doing the NaNoWriMo - I know I could never do it of course, but I wish you all the luck - you have so much going on right now!

  4. Oh your poor toe! Hope it heals quickly. The green eggs are too cute!

  5. I'm so excited to hear you are doing NaNoWriMo too!
