NaNoWriMo

Hello, my writing peeps!

Just a quick question, and feel free to wipe me off the planet if this is the last thing any of you want to know about/discuss etc:

Is anybody contemplating taking on NaNoWriMo this year? I've thought about it in the past, but this year, I think I'm finally in a place where I can actually do this - even though it requires planning, and even worse, a plot.

It's just, I think I might need some encouragement, you know? Maybe somebody who can shoot me an email, or daily PM or something like that. A visual kick in the arse, as it were. I'm willing to return the favour, if needed! I know I can't spend all day on social media, cause that defeats the purpose of setting a writing goal, but as much as the family is behind me (meaning, in theory, but the reality is a different beast), you guys are my best bet for success, I think.

Also, does anyone know if bluespirit on AO3 is here on LJ? I need to contact her(?) and ask a question, but it doesn't need to be out there for all the world to read.

Ta - and many happy words to you all. :)

I meant I detest email specifically, although checking it regularly is probably what caused me to hate it in the first place. I admit it's easier with the phone and iPad linked, the stuff just downloads automatically. Takes the thinking right out of it. 'Course, I'm still dealing with the passive-aggressive comments from my husband about not checking email. God, I miss three hours 'cause I take an afternoon nap... (In his defence, I used to be shockingly awful, so he has some basis in his complaints, but that was when I had login, sheesh, give a girl a break already.)

It's 11:40pm here, and I'm done for the day. I'm still getting the epic silent treatment - I think I'll sleep in the spare room tonight, I'm not playing nice anymore. I can only take having a toddler in the house for so long - now is not one of those times. Nothing against toddlers of course, I know they're far better behaved. I raised two, and at least they had the decency to grow out of the sulky phase.

Sorry.

Well, I use an e-mail client that has most of my addresses linked and I leave it open when I don't mind being disturbed by pop-ups. But it can be very distracting.

Gee, I hope the atmosphere eases up a bit.

I felt a bit torn about my projects today, and didn't get much done. I woke up with an idea for my current favourite het pairing, and jotted down the rudimentary premise. But I kept being sidetracked with reviewing canon for yuletide, trying to finish my podfic, writing fills for fic-promptly's challenge week and trying to decide which drabbletag prompt to fill at femslash100. Yeah, I know, zero focus. I told myself last month to pop out a fill for that drabbletag every day because it end on Nov 30, but I'm currently running out of ideas for the fandoms I don't need to review extensively.

Long story short, I "only" made it to 770 today. :) Hope you did better!

The atmosphere is much better, thanks. Talking things out helped a lot.

That said, my life is about to get a little crazy around here. We have a new family arriving on Wednesday, and my family is helping them settle in. I have to shop tomorrow for groceries, and then on Wednesday head out to the airport to collect them. I don't even know where their house is!

Now, I'm not working, so I should just stop whining, but damn it, I planned for this month to be free. Humph.
