NaBloPoMo 2011

I have always wanted to participate in the annual National Novel Writing Month which occurs during November.

I have tons of great ideas for novels. But, I never seem to make the time to follow through on completing them. So, I thought why not baby step my way there via participating in National Blog Posting Month?

How hard can be it be, right?

Back in August of this year, I blogged for 31 days straight. I did it as a way to kickoff my new commitment to blogging on a regular basis. I surmised that my participation in National Blog Posting month would be a stroll in the park.

Besides, November only has 30 days in it.

But,  I forgot that November also has Thanksgiving vacation.  In addition, it also kicks off the start of the holiday season.

I feel super overwhelmed right now.  Yet, each day,  I force myself to blog through my exhaustion.

Perhaps next year around this time, I will be in the throes of completing a novel...

Divatosity: Writer's Nook Envy

I am in the process of creating a Writer's Nook for my townhouse. This task is so  Gen X/hipstery that I feel a little sheepish about even blogging about it. Yet, it must be mentioned because this simple task has turned into a huge undertaking.

My new townhouse has a spacious basement which upon first glance seemed like a great place to set up an office and a workshop. Setting up the work table and supplies went pretty smoothly.

However, the drafty basement has proved to be a not so great location for my writer's nook. Also, it is a windowless space which after awhile made me feel as though I was in some sort of lock down situation.

So, I moved my writer's nook upstairs and this space is definitely more conducive for working. Though, my makeshift printer tables pushed together a long with the dining room chair screams "first apartment out of college chic".

At age 41, I would like to move past that decor and into something a lot more sophisticated.

Alas, cash flo…

Lots Of Irons In My Fire...

The past few months have been hectic in a good way. Years of personal growth, soul searching, and planning have come to fruition. Though, everything is not completely in place yet. I am definitely moving in the right direction.

I know this because the obstacles which were firmly in my way before seem to be stepping aside for me. The Universe seems to have given its blessing to this more evolved path that I am walking. Of course, this is not to say that there will not be challenges along the way.

But, I have learned over the years how not to allow challenges to become permanent barriers. Challenges are meant to guide us in the right direction. Unfortunately,they can occur without prior warning and despite having a solid contingency plan in place. Been there. Done that.

It has only been within the past few years that I have truly learned to embrace the wisdom which can come from challenges and unforeseen delays. A few years ago, several challenges swept into my life and seemed to take …
