So, So (So-So?)

I didn't finish my NaNovel this year.  I'm still working on it, in between my day job and trying to learn Slovak, but I'm more than a little disappointed in myself.  I think I was padding my word count too much and it was leading to bad writing, which was leading to me not really feeling like putting the effort in.  Plus, suddenly working 9 hours a day after long periods of lazing around the house made me super tired.  Excuses, excuses.  Point is, I didn't finish.

And my real point is, rather than focusing on my unfinished story, to ask you how you found NaNo this year, if you finished, if you got anything out of it, if you'll be doing it next year, etc., etc.

Also, I'd like to take the opportunity to wish you a Merry Holiday of Your Choosing and a Happy New Year.

In keeping with last year's tradition, some random, creepy holiday art.

I totally only got 7000 words into mine before work and domestic stuff took over and I lost the thread. It's a good story (if I do say so myself), but not having thing interwebs at home made it that much more difficult.

I know it's possible to be a writer and a mother (step mother or otherwise), because if it wasn't, J.K Rowling wouldn't have so much money...perhaps, one day, I will discover her secret to writing well and still having time to drop everyone at practice... :D

As for NaNo next year...jury's still out on that one. I've won it twice, so I know it's doable...but who knows what will happen in the ten months between now and then?

(also, I totally have the interwebs at home now)
