NaNoWriMo and November were a complete failure. And to top it off, I don't feel like I have a good excuse. There was a week in there where I wasn't feeling the best. Plus Thanksgiving, along with Black Friday (online shopping only, thank you very much), also sucked up a week. Planning presents for the kids (my shopping for them is DONE -- that's a relief). Yeah, when I say that, I kind of wonder what happened to the month.
Maybe it's just the year. I mean, it started out wretched, so the pervasive feelings from the beginning of the year are just lingering at the end of it. All of November, I just wanted to say, "Screw it! I just want to sit down and plan 2019."
And that's what I'm going to do in December. That's all I'm going to do. Plan next year, and have the optimism that it will be a much better year for writing. And I'll do a lengthier assessment of 2018 in my next post. (How depressing is that going to be? Ugh.)
OK, I'm going to throw myself a bone now. NaNoWriMo 2018 wasn't a complete failure. I revised about 1600 words. That's 1600 more words than I had before November started, so it's a win, even if a small one.
But so this isn't a terrible and utterly depressing post (like the next one just might be), I needed to throw in kitties. More importantly, kitty videos! And well, a Nightshade picture because I don't have a video of him -- it seems the girl cats in the house are more entertaining at times. Shade is a bit too laid back.
If you want to see Part 2 of the second one, just pop over to my YouTube Channel. It's kind of sparse, but I may add more kitty videos in the future! Enjoy Rikku and Sylph below. =) Goofball fuzzballs.
