I am happy to announce that the pity party is over. Thanks to all my readers for the excellent advice. It seems the only thing I want to do when I’m down is get away from everyone and revel in my misery, though in truth it’s the worst thing I could do. I was surprised by how much your encouragement boosted me.
I’ve shifted gears as far as writing goes. I’m determined to finish my fairy world novel by the end of this month. Wish me luck! In the writing world, November is the month for writers to write 50,000 words. It’s called NaNoWrimo. I’ve never participated, but this year I will, although my goal isn’t 50,000 words. It’s to finish my book!
I know we usually set goals at the beginning of the new year, but why not now? What are some of your goals? I’d love to hear how you plan to accomplish them. For me, I intend to write 1,000 words every day. By the end of November, I plan to post whether I accomplished finishing my book or not.
Let me know what your goals are! Because you know, once you write them down, they’re a lot harder to ignore.
Here’s another thing that cheered me up. My four-year old came home from school singing, “What does the fox say?” I thought it was another kid’s song, but then I was enlightened as to where the song actually comes from. And then I learned that not only is my four-year old singing this, but all my kids plus my eight-year old’s whole football team. This video is weird but hilarious. YOU’VE BEEN WARNED!
