NaNoWriMo starts in exactly TWO WEEKS. I’m scrambling to try and and figure out how on earth I will be able to fit NaNo into my jam-packed schedule… Yesterday I was sure I wasn’t going to do NaNo for the first time since I started in 2013, but then I watched this video.
KRISTINA, WHY ARE YOU SO INSPIRING??
I have outlines and rewrites and plotbunnies ready for when I can make time for them… but the question is whether I actually can manage it. I don’t know. November is my favorite month of the year because of NaNo (and my birthday! and Día de los Muertos! and Thanksgiving! and my boyfriend is visiting from London!) and I would be SO EFFING SAD to give it up this year.
But the fact is, the second year of my PhD is brutal. I’m barely surviving as it is. I guess I’ll have to see how the next two weeks pan out and make a decision on Halloween or something.
Also, I still don’t have my quarterly writing goals set up. Ugh. That’s how bad the quarter has been thus far.
Speaking of, I have a presentation to prep for Thursday. I have 6 hours of class that day… help.
