Getting Ready

I'm back after a six week sabbatical and have a lot of catching up to do!

I find that I cannot spend a few hours a week each on a variety of different activities, such as blogging, contributing to forums, reading, writing, games, as well as the non-negotiable parts of my life, such as church commitments, family commitments, making a success of my business. So I rotate. I tend to pour all my spare time into one interest at a time and make a success of it, then when I start to miss the enjoyment I had in one of my other interests, I abandon the one interest in favour of the other. It's not an ideal way to live ones life, but I find that I cannot bear to be mediocre and that means dedication and practice.

So am I returning to my passion for blogging? Well, yes and no. Actually I am returning to my passion for writing and have decided to give NaNowriMo a go this year. That means every spare moment will be dedicated to writing. I do however intend to post here regularly to update progress, perhaps share a few snippets, share some plot dilemmas or beg for inspiration for that elusive character name!

So wish me luck (I'll need it!) and if you are also taking part (or know someone who is), be sure to leave me a comment. I am looking for people to share this adventure and with whom I can encourage and commiserate.


  1. Good luck! I'm participating in NaNo too. I'm bookworm0753 there. :)

  2. Good luck!!! I'm not doing NaNo, but I'll certainly cheer on anyone who's doing it. May you write fast and get your story down well! ;o)

  3. Oh wow!! GOOD LUCK with nanowrimo!!! I didn't and won't participate but I do follow lots and lots of bloggers who had a go and are having a go at this again and I know fun and good times were and will be had by all!! Yay! take care

  4. That inability to devote time to several things at once resonates with me. Not just the time aspect, but also the mental processes needed. For example, I can't critique and write in the same week - I just can't shift mental gears fast enough.

    Good luck with NaNo. I applaud your dedication, and admire anyone who can make that commitment.

  5. Good luck with NaNoWriMo! :) I'm doing it, too; this will be my second year.

    (I'm FlyingWriter over at the site.)

  6. Thanks for your words of encouragement everyone!

    Good luck Cherie and Golden Eagle :)
