So, I was trying to having a regular blogging schedule. Really, I was. But then several things happened:
1. I moved.
Alright, so moving is one thing. But if you know me, you know that my hatred of moving is not merely a "dislike". It is a burning passion. Everything is messy, and everything is tiring, and I'm trying to write a novel? Ha. Ha ha ha. You're so funny, Christine, trying to keep a blog while you're contemplating Evil Moving.
And since I'm really good at procrastinating, I decided to just keep on procrastinating. And now it's September! But thankfully, not much has happened in Christine-Land since moving. I have been trying to work on my novel, but have not been doing a good job of doing that efficiently. Actually, I'm supposed to be working on it right now. Good things are happening--I've nailed down the main character's emotion journeys, for one--but work mostly requires sitting down and concentrating, and lately I've felt too lethargic to do so.
But maybe if I blog about it, I will feel guilt-tripped into doing so more regularly? One can only hope.
I also started some (vague, preliminary) work on NaNo today. As ML of the SF Peninsula, NaNo prep consists of very little novel preparation and quite a bit of emailing, ordering supplies, drinking coffee, wanting to take a nap, forcing self to start looking at locations for write-ins, planning a kick-off party, hating self for actually planning a party that involves me being the centre of attention, debating whether I should both with a Halfway Party, planning a TGIO party, and hoping that my current NaNo idea will last until November. But I enjoy it!
But that does mean that I am hoping to keep a blog with several things going on at the end of this year, such as:
5. Jr. High
6. Intern Class
7. Actually trying to be sociable
Although to be fair, 1, 2, 3, 5, and 7 were all going on during moving. So maybe there is hope after all!
Sorry for the rambly post. Just trying to get back into the swing of blogging! I think I might have missed it.
