I’m out of school and I’m stuck in a rut. I am doing nothing. I’m not working on my projects around the house. I’m not working on any of my craft projects. I’m not doing much for the website. I’m not writing. I really don’t know what I do between 5 o’clock and 10:30. The time just seems to evaporate into YouTube videos, web surfing, and watching TV. This is not a place I want to be, especially not with winter coming on. I’ll end up being 400 pounds by the time spring gets here. Time to shake off the blahs.


Whatever could this be leading up to?

National Novel Writing Month is almost here. That would be November for those of you not in the loop. I haven’t had much luck with the writing, what with the being in school and what not, so I think this year I should have more success. Besides, I need to do this. To set a goal and accomplish a thing. My last win was 2014 and my last attempt was 2015. At this point my NaNoWriMo record is pretty miserable, 3 wins – 11 losses.

Let’s consider this me officially throwing my hat into the ring. I’m going to write a novel in November. I don’t know what that novel is going to be about quite yet, but I have some ideas. What I do know is that it’s going to be something new. I’m not going to rehash, refresh, or recycle any of my old novel ideas. That particular strategy has not worked out very well for me in the past. So, probably, I shouldn’t use that strategy again.

Time to start brainstorming some ideas, sketching an outline, and probably putting together an inspirational book cover.
