Another Year, Another NaNoWriMo, But No Attempt

It’s that time of year soon, November. That means National Novel Writing Month! I’ve attempted it in the past, but have never completed it. This year, I’m not even going to try to attempt it.

Two years ago, I started it, but I stuck with it for only about a week. The reason I quit is because I couldn’t keep up with it while I had little free time with a young child at home.

A year ago, I started it, but I stuck with it for only a couple days. I basically made no attempt to even finish it. Why? Because of my daughter again. I just couldn’t find the time to do it.

This year, I’m not going to even join. I have even less time now because of both my daughter, who refuses to go to bed at a decent time, and because of our pending move to Canada. I can’t focus on it, really.

Next year, maybe. I might actually get to do it.

Anyone participating?

Two Weeks Without Reading

It’s been more than two weeks since I read a book. I used to go months without reading at times, but that hasn’t happened in a few years. In at least the past five years, I’ve read books nearly every day, sometimes going a couple days without reading anything. But this time, I went two weeks without reading.

I’ve come to the conclusion that reading is like an addictive drug. I have a strong desire to read right now, and I want to immerse myself in another world as soon as possible. I find that seeing the world or another world from the eyes of other people is incredibly desirable. I want to know how they see things, how they feel, and how they do things. I want to read now!

It’s also been two weeks since I’ve done normal updates on this blog. Of course, I’ve kept to two posts per day, but they’ve been short, and just like my reading, the number of people reading my blog has dropped drastically. But I think this also has to do with the fact that I haven’t been responding to comments in a timely manner while my sister’s been here.  Well, now that she’s gone back to Canada, I’ll get back to work on providing bigger and better posts. Not only will I be reading books again, but you’ll be reading more from this blog.

So, how were your last two weeks?
