Two Weeks

I return to this project once again with an all-too-likely-misplaced sense of optimism.

This will be my eighth official year participating in NaNoWriMo; I've won once, though I've always had a good time participating, win or lose. Last year, I was ahead in my word count consistently and had great hopes for completion - and then midway through the month, on our 18-month anniversary, my then-boyfriend proposed to me. This threw me for such a loop that after saying yes (we were married this past July), calling all my friends, and freaking out, I had a period of several days during which I did no writing - and eventually, the spark fizzled and died.

Now, if the question is, would I rather have finished NaNoWriMo or had the unexpected and amazing experience of the proposal-slash-engagement, no question. I have no regrets about last year. But this year - ha ha, this year.

I am a full-time graduate student, doing my field work and working full-time as a Special Education paraprofessional, maintaining a household, and trying to maintain a social life (which will likely be put on hold for the bulk of November).

How's everybody else feeling about NaNo?

See you all for prep time this month and for kick-off next. Good luck.
