NaNoWriMo Fail and NaBloPoMo attempt

Okay, so I got just under 8,000 words this year. Pitiful. But I had fun anyway. So I'm going to take another attempt at National Blog Posting Month. Beginning December 1st, (actually, beginning today, since I'm posting today and tomorrow is the 1st) I'm going to attempt to make a blog post everyday....See you tomorrow!

It's National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo, though as one friend calls it, "NaNoProMo" National Novel Procrastination Month. We are one day past the half way point and I am not even a quarter of the way done. I'm not even quite an eighth of the way done, but I have confidence that barring a power outage, I'll get past that "hurdle" by the end of the evening. I am also Municipal Liaison for the first time, and let me assure you, my ML duties have in no way intruded upon my word count. I just have such ADD that I feel like I have to check this out, and this and this, and on the Office of Letters and Light Blog I found this amazing post about a wrimo (that's we NaNoWriMo participants are called) who is writing her novel from Antarctica! There was a link to her blog, so of course I had to go there and go all the way back to the beginning of her blog where she is beginning her Antarctic journey! This is only one example of how I am procrastinating. Writing this post is another. And when I publish this post and log off, I'll go to Facebook and see if there is any important information from any of my friends or relatives that has been posted.
