I Shall Miss You, Friends

I am sorry, I know I often go on hiatus, but this one cannot be avoided. You see, I am one of those crazies that tries to do NaNoWriMo every year. Last year, I dropped out because frankly, I had finals coming up, and we’ve all got to have a sense of priority.

It goes like this. Crazy writers like me and a lot of my friends get together (figuratively) and spur each other on in the insane goal of writing an entire novel during the month of November. At the same time, we’re working our jobs/going to our classes/doing the same daily things we have been doing all year. This means that a lot of things take back seat priority – TV, Social Networking, video games, and a good chunk of our hang-out time.

I’m sorry, friends and family, but November is here again. If you’re a friend and want to hang out with me, join us at a NaNoWriMo write-in. If you’re family, you might just have to wait until Sunday (day off writing) or Thanksgiving. TV, you’re just going to have to wait the entire month, unless I’ve exceeded my goal that day.

It’s just the way it’s got to be. Any spare moments I have need to go to my wife. (I love being able to say that, by the way.)

And to all other NaNoWriMo participants, HUZZAH!
