Five Things Friday: September 27, 2013

Five things I didn’t do this week:

Eat lots of vegetables (only ate some vegetables)

Read most of the two books I started last weekend (read almost nothing).

Work on organizing my room (not even a little bit).

Write (thought about it, then went back to hulu).

Come up with an interesting FTF post topic/list.

 

Will I ever get myself back on track? It seems doubtful. But right now I’m in a hotel room in Vermont, on a break from life, and I don’t even care.

November, In Closing

In a few short hours – but not any shorter than any other hours, of course – November will be over. Finally…

Although I’m glad December is just around the corner, I do have one small regret… I didn’t actually meet any of my November writing goals. If you missed them, or don’t remember them, you can read about them in this post.

I certainly still intend to do these things at some point, but I do feel a little bit like I let an opportunity slip away by not using NaNoWriMo to devote myself to writing. I’m tired of attempting to justify (mostly to myself) the wasted time, and I’m tired of getting so little writing done. But why am I telling you this? It’s my problem – one I’m unlikely to solve any time soon.

I did manage to finish Chapter 2 of Helen, and although that is far behind where I wanted to be, it’s something anyway. I didn’t finish any of the short stories or write my synopsis or work at all on my fairy tales. I have not yet done the cursory edit of chapter 2 either – I’ll try to get to that in the next few days so you can read it.

Generally, there is more bad than good to my Novembers. Maybe next year…
