So, I thought about writing about this year’s NaNoWriMo again. As a conclusion, like I did last time. Last month, I couldn’t really get into writing. You’ve already seen that on my blog, as it gets only sporadic updates at the moment and in the last month. I apologize for my lack of work. I can assure you that it isn’t just procrastination. Procrastination might be the writers’ affliction and I’m definitely suffering from that.
What broke my spirit for NaNoWriMo had nothing to do with writing or the blog, but rather that something that happened at the beginning of the month. I’ve hinted at some personal hardships a few times, I believe, but have never expiated upon it. I still don’t plan to do that today and I apologize for being so vague. As a german citizen, I have to make it apparent who actually owns this blog and cannot fully hide behind my pseudonym. If I could be anonymous, I’d probably tell you a lot more about myself than I do now.
What happen threw me off track pretty suddenly and violently. I’m still trying to get back some sort of normality, whatever that means for someone like me. I apologize for my lack of content and writing in general. At the moment, I simply cannot find the energy to do much.
Because of that, I failed NaNoWriMo quite gloriously. Most of what I wrote for NaNo I wrote on my sole Writing Day at the beginning of the month, and I’m still baffled at how I managed that. Still, that only brought me to a wordcount of about 10.000 words, which is just not enough and only 1/5 of what was needed for NaNoWriMo (and 1/3 of my personal goal).
I’ll be trying my hardest to complete this and my other works in a timely manner and will hopefully manage to write some more reviews and other stuff for my blog. It’s December now and that means Christmas and all, so I’ll probably not have as much time as in the other months of the year, but I’m adamant in staying with this blog, even if that isn’t always easy for me.
