It’s been a long time since I last posted here, but I’ve thought of it numerous times. I’ve been waiting for a good time to start blogging again, and that time never presented itself. I finally decided it’s like a lot of things. You have to make time for the important stuff, or it gets crowded out by the urgent. This year has been a tale of the tyranny of the urgent. But it’s been an educational year. I’m learning as I go.
Right now, I’m in the midst of something else I really don’t, on paper anyway, have time for, NaNoWriMo, It’s been a struggle too. Last year, I breezed through with time to spare, finishing just over 50,000 words by November 18th. This year, I didn’t even start until the 7th. I got caught up and then fell behind again, but I plan on doing a little writing tonight and getting caught back up.
This had been a year of things taking too long and being too hard. Even Thanksgiving, which I normally pull off with precision, went a bit awry and I ended up staying up all night cooking and it still didn’t get finished until almost 2:00 PM. But we all had plenty to eat and everyone was here except the two that attend college out of state.
Anyway, I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are looking forward to a peaceful Christmas. I know I am.
