Epic NANO fail

So It's November again and that means it's National Novel Writing Month.

It's the month in spite of the hollidays and Thanksgiving around the corner you are expected to write a 50,000 word novel. Well, in my insanity I signed up thinking that with the baby being fairly new I'd be able to sit in front of the computer for a couple of hours a day and at least get something written.

No one told me in advance that my 5 of my 7 kids were going to go through a horrible coughing/puking virus one at a time. Or that after weeks of cleaning up puke I'd get the virus myself. Or that once that had run through my family my 13 yo would end up in the hospital with apendicitis.

The nerve of my crystal ball!

Needless to say, I have only prodouced about 2,500 words, and only 306 of them were in the hospital. Last year I typed 2,700 words the first night!

Oh well, there's nothing I can do about real life. My control exists only in my books.

Sorry that nano wasn't everything you hoped it would be. I hope your family, and yourself, are doing much better.

(My word verification is swarin. Hope life isn't making you want to do that.)
