Farewell for NaNovember

Goodbye reading. Hello writing. It's that time of the year when I resolutely put down my books, pick up my pen, and wonder where the hell October went. Yes, National Novel Writing Month is about to begin once again.

I've been my usual disorganised self, which means I have no writing plan whatsoever, which means that I'll waste the first few days of NaNo planning and outlining before desperately trying to catch up with my word count for the remainder of the month. This time last year I was out of a job, which was crappy, but which also meant that I had all the time in the world to write . . . and yet I still barely made it to 50,000 words. Since I'm working again now, I get the feeling that I'm going to need to devote as much of my spare time to writing as possible. Which is why I'm putting the blog on hiatus until December.

I'll miss writing reviews, and I'll miss participating in Tough Travelling (literally, I missed it this week because I had a bunch of stuff going on), but I'll be back - hopefully with another 50,000 words under my belt and something vaguely resembling an actual story.

See you in December!


  1. Good luck for NaNoWriMo! I'll be doing it this year as well (I do it every year for tradition) but still going to try to write reviews and such...yeah, I'm kinda nuts. Things are so busy this year I'm pretty sure I won't make 50K anyway, but we'll see! Never know if you don't try, right? :)

    I don't know if we've shared profiles already, but if you need a writing buddy for motivation or support, feel free to add me up

    1. Cheers Mogsy, I've added you as a buddy. :) Yeah, last year was my first year doing NaNo. I managed to carry on reading and reviewing as normal and still hit 50k, but time is something of a struggle at the moment.

      Good luck with the novel! :D
