A new blog and a new day

Well, I have finally managed to make this blog – I’ve been meaning to for some time, yet kept putting it off. Originally I was going to make it with my domain, however it seems there are more features this way, and I can follow people (and people can follow me).
Not sure how happy I am with the graphic at the top. Since I haven’t designed in over a year my skills are a little rusty… but that’s ok, practise makes perfect 😉

Last month I participated in NaNoWriMo. I’m not sure if I could really post my novel here, but I wrote about 23,590 words that month – which is huge for me. I didn’t win, but I achieved a personal best I would not otherwise have done. Usually, I nano about 8,000 words at the most. This year is the first time I’ve done so much, and perhaps I can thank the write-ins for that – even though I might have talked more than I wrote, I was surrounded by people concerned with a similar goal, who had similar interests. It was wonderful.
I’m going to try and complete my 50,000 words in December, or at least as much of it as I can. Self-discipline is difficult for me, and often I procrastinate more than I work on things – even if they’re what I want to be doing. So this shall be good for me; to continue, to keep going and to achieve something when I don’t usually achieve anything at all.
Though there is so much to do this month – Mum wants me to crochet some things for her, for Christmas, and then we are reflooring (which should be a hoot). After we refloor, up goes the Christmas tree and then in a few days it’s Christmas. So a busy month – by my standards, at least. But I will write, damnit, and that’s all there is to it. Even if I have to fight myself to do what I want (and often that is the case).

Today, I’m going out and feeding my Doctor Who addiction by buying more iTunes credit. Really, it is a slippery slope, and when I run out of Doctor Who there’s going to be this big hole in my life which I shall have to fill… how depressing! Of course there shall be more Doctor Who… even if I have to wait for it. Oh Doctor, how I love you and your adventures!

I shall finish up now and stop rambling 😉 I hope you have enjoyed my post, though you probably haven’t, and will keep reading so I know I’m not alone here!
