No NaNoWriMo for me this year

standard November 3, 2010 Leave a response

Four years ago I signed up to do NaNoWriMo – National Novel Writing Month. I was ready. I had a plot line in head, a laptop, and a toddler who was a great sleeper. I thought I could totally handle 50 000 words in 30 days.

One measly week before the kick-off I got pregnant and I slept through that entire November. The following year I had an infant who never slept. Ditto the year after that.

Now that Little L is finally sleeping at night (knock wood, p-tuy, p-tuy, salt over the shoulder and all that…) I really thought this might be my year.

But sadly it’s not going to happen. Things at work are really hopping (Christmas cards anyone?) and I’m putting in way more than my usual hours. I’m spending more time commuting the kids to school and daycare than ever before. And frankly, if I had an extra hour or two every day I’d want to spend it with my family or trying to tame the chaos in my house.

Yesterday I watched all the excited NaNo tweets fly by and I felt a little twinge of disappointment.

Then this morning I sat at my computer and I finished the second round of edits on my novel. Ironically, the novel based on the plot lines I had thought up for that very first NaNo four years ago. A few more tweaks and I’ll be ready to send it to the beta round of readers.

One day I’ll sit down at midnight on Halloween, hopped up on candy and I’ll hammer out the first words to my first nano novel. In the meantime I’ll work on my longer novel and everything else I have going on and I’ll hold on tight to the incredibly fulfilled feeling I felt this morning when I finished editing the last chapter.
