Since the birth of Little Boy in early 2014, it is safe to say that I have fallen away from writing. Life gets in the way. First it was that new admiration of this little life that we managed to create and then it was chasing after that new little life when he refused to sit still. We are on the go 24-7. Even while we're at home, we're always on the move...or, he is and I spend my time chasing him and asking "what's in your mouth now?" or using the new favorite phrase "please don't sit in the fridge!" Being a mom is never short of excitement.
But when do I find time to write? Well, for the past year and a half, I really haven't. I have attempted NaNo a couple times (the November round and the summer ones) but haven't completed anything. And when NaNo isn't going on, forget writing. I have a few notebooks with random ideas in them but nothing has taken off. Nothing has sparked that creativity and given me a reason to make time to write.
And now, the time for NaNoWriMo has come once again. 18 days to go, counting today. This time, I am determined to get something done. 50,000 words isn't that difficult...at least it never used to be. Before Little Boy was born, I said I would have a completed first draft written. That never happened. Now, we are expecting again and due in early 2016 with Little Girl. This time, I am determined to have a completed outline. And what better time to do it than the craziest month of all...NaNo November! What better place to join up with writers from all over?
Yes, this November, I will do it! NaNoWriMo, here I come!!
