Oh dear, oh dear. It’s November 23 and can you all guess where I am with my word count for NaNoWriMo? Luckily, no, it’s not at zero. That would be pitiful.
I’m floating somewhere between 6 and 7 thousand words. I am supposed to be close to 40,000 by this point. Great. Good work.
I’m not going to make excuses…
Okay. Wait. No. I am.
Do you know what happened about 3 days into the month? Yeah, Movember overload. Do you know what I’m selling in my Etsy shop? A super popular, little notepad that has something like 3,000 views and was the catalyst to my dropping NaNoWriMo somewhere around November 5th. I had so many orders flying in that it felt like I was constantly packing things up and heading to the post office.
Then, of course, Christmas inspiration struck and I started planning Christmas parties and wanting to decorate the house and design things for my shop and so, all writing efforts quickly went out the window.
That, and, well, I didn’t have an idea, and I thought I could jump into NaNoWriMo and fly by the seat of my pants, but, clearly, I cannot. I need more of a plan than that, I guess.
So, here I am with my original inventory having sold out yesterday and fully restocked as of today. I am working on this whole logo redesign that I am slowly implementing via various outlets and thinking, “Shoot, I haven’t updated that blog in a bit.”
I’ve been working on a Christmas-y craft that I’ve been photographing along the way and will eventually share that DIY goodness (read: it’s super lame) and will hopefully do some more food fun posts soon, too. It’s been pretty lame around here, what with lots of homemade pizza and nomming on a GIANT ham I bought for so cheap. It fed us for a week and we never want to see ham again (for now, at least). Needless to say, it’s not like there’s anything worthy of posting about a GIANT ham. Unless you want to know the various ways in which we consumed it just to break it up over the week (read: also lame).
Anyway. I added a new page to the site yesterday entitled Features. I’ve been lucky to find myself featured on some pretty rad blogs over the last couple of months and thought I’d share the love. I’m kinda proud of the whole thing. I’m goofy like that.
