My second post on this blog mentioned NaNoWriMo and how I had set myself the task of writing 50,000 words in the month of November.
Today is the halfway point and I should now be bragging about my achievements so far…Well the dog ate it, I left it on the bus… blah blah blah! excuses ad infinitum.
This year, like last year, I was probably a little presumptuous that the work situation would have calmed down by November. That has not been the case, if anything it has become increasingly busier. So with great reluctance, that I have decided to wave the white flag and give up. The novel that everyone supposedly has in them (so the cliché goes) will sadly have to wait for another year.
Though I have written 5000 words for an academic paper in the last few days – though I doubt that will be able to count towards the Nano word count.
