(personal/updates) The Weekly Round-up for Sunday and NaNoWriMo thoughts

I’ve decided that a weekly round-up is a good idea, not only because it gives me a spot to post goals and toss thoughts around, but because I can be accountable to my readers. With NaNoWriMo just around the corner, being accountable is a good thing.

No real to-do list for today, simply because I’m finally back on line after having lost power yesterday. Luckily, we were at a friend’s party and they have a wood stove. We were also lucky: not only do we have a gas stove (yay, gas!) and gas hot water, but our power outage was due to branches on the lines that were just cleared off. Not sure when it went out, but it was restored at 5 pm. Not bad. One of the good things about living in the city.

So, NaNoWriMo. It starts tomorrow, at midnight. I will be up, doing my first words as the clock ticks over. I love NaNo. I have done it since 2005 = have not won yet, but I’m hoping to this year! I love the energy of NaNo, the enthusiasm, the comraderie. Am I convinced that what I write is the best I’ll ever write? Hell no. It’s rough draft. It’s BAD rough draft. But you know what? I’ll enjoy the hell out of writing it. And that’s one of the points of NaNo.

So, goals this week:
– NaNo counts! I am determined to keep up at least for the first week!
– Cleaning my office. This is going to be a work in progress – it’s a terrible dumping ground for everything and well, it’s gross. But I’m going to get it clean this year!
– Finish my scarf at work. Yep, knitting again.
– Gym! Monday, Wednesday, Thursday (to swim) and Friday. This WILL happen.
– Morning Pages! This will also be a habit I’m picking up again.

Now, to do said Morning Pages for today, and then I’m going to alternate editing with cleaning. 15 minute sprints of each.
