Yeah, OK, sorry if that reminds you of X-mas, but for me, this is the most wonderful time of the year – or at least, it’s supposed to be.
For those of you that are new to the blog, I’m pagan (a white woman as it happens), and so Samhain starts an amazing month and a bit where I’m running Nanowrimo locally – battering around like a loon, talking to new writers and cheering, very loudly for everyone taking part whether or not they ‘win’.
This year though, there’s a bit of reluctance in me. A bit of sadness too, actually.
This last year has not been a good year for my health, though for the first time since PrincessPink was very small, my mental health has sucked more than my physical – and trust me when I say that multiple miscarriages at the beginning of the year make that even more harrowing.
I can’t really talk about what’s going on, mostly because it turns me into a bundle of anger and tears, but this year is one of the first years for Nanowrimo where I’m so seriously overweight that most of my clothes don’t fit, that I spend most of my time in PJs, and I’m not sure how I’m supposed to run our meets.
I WILL run the meets, but something’s going to give somewhere.
I’ve got a lovely (I hope) post about the five books…no, six…maybe eight, I’m writing this year, but there’s a definitive focus on only four of them. I’ll get over 50k as usual, but that’s never a problem for me. My problem is leaving the house now.
So, my next couple of posts will be about Nanowrimo, and there will be a wordcount tracker in my sidebar, and it’ll update daily (I hope – the new script I wrote should do that, maybe, perhaps, possibly), but for now I just wanted to pop my head up and say that it’s coming. Maybe today, but definitely before the weekend.
I’m also hoping to launch Gloswriters this weekend, along with some other stuff.
I’ll also be giving up some sites ‘free to a good home(host)’. You can take them and pay me to host them or move them, the choice is yours. More on that later though.
