If we were having coffee I’d tell you that this week had been, once again, a strange week. I’ve been fighting a bug, which in of itself is not that strange, but the fact this one was accompanied by serious dizziness (so much so that I was taking time off of work). I ended up the doctor who diagnosed me with the very fancy sounding: Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo. Basically there was some loose debris in my inner ear which was setting me out of balance. There were some exercises that I did which set everything back in place pretty quickly! I kind of saw it as being akin to those old marble games where you are trying to get the marble to balance in a little hold created by the flimsy cardboard insert 🙂
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that I’ve officially had to step myself out of NaNoWriMo — I had a really good start, but the month has been too ridiculous to keep on top of things. However, December… December is actually a great month for me to write, other than one crazy week, work is pretty low-key and I have a number of days off thanks to the holidays. There isn’t any extended family coming to town, and there are only a few holiday events to go to.
I was talking to some friends and a few of them are looking at trying to do a bunch of writing in December as well so… December will be DeDoWriMo (I’m thinking of it as December Do-Over Writing Month, or.. maybe December, DO WRITING, Month…) I’ll put up more about it later this month, but am looking forward to the idea of a group of people also writing with similar goals — it really can help me keep going with the projects I’m working on. One of my primary goals with it is to be able to end the year feeling good about my writing, having accomplished some things right at the end of the year to set myself up for a successful writing year to come.
How has your week been? Do you have anything exciting coming up? If you’re in the US are you doing anything exciting for Thanksgiving?
Today’s post is a part of the Weekend Coffee Share, graciously hosted by Part Time Monster every weekend. A time for us to come together, share a cup of coffee (or our beverage of choice) to share some of what is going on in our lives. It’s a lovely check-in!
