Can you believe October is almost over? The month just flew by for me.
This year we had beautiful weather for many, many days in October. I’ve been going on walks every day I could all month long. My walks have primarily been to some places around town I know are quieter. I can plan better when it’s just me, the trees, some birds, squirrels, and, occasionally, a deer or two. Most days I’ve been visiting 2-3 places that fit that description. None of them are very big, but between visiting them and getting there, I’ve been walking at least 4 miles a day.
In my last post about NaNoWriMo I was still really unsure about what I would work on during the month. I was going back and forth for a while, but I settled on what I wanted to write a while ago. I just held off on making it official because I was worried something more exciting would come along and change all my plans. Maybe the caution wasn’t necessary, since I didn’t find a better idea and change my mind.
I settled on continuing to work on the 4th draft of The Dreams during NaNoWriMo. As much as I’ve been craving the opportunity to start something new and write with reckless abandon, I couldn’t justify leaving this draft alone for an entire month. Writing has been such a struggle for me this year. I’m hoping that will change once I have the energy of NaNoWriMo backing me up.
Are you participating in NaNoWriMo this year? Add me as a buddy and we can help hold each other accountable.
