I’m glad I’m a nano-rebel this year as I wasn’t very successful in the past. Doing nano and working two jobs isn’t the easiest feat in the world. Possibly working only one job and doing nano isn’t easy either until a person has one successful nano under their belt.
I was hoping to share another teaching from the Bible, but haven’t had the time, or made the necessary time to do the necessary research to make that happen.
Today I began another Biblical teaching but will have to finish it another day. I worked most of the day with my crew and we didn’t return home until 5:45 when the sun was already setting, seeing it is now November in the mid-west and after daylight savings time. We fell back last weekend so now it’s lighter faster in the morning, but darker earlier in the evening.
One more month of that and then it begins to head the other way, the only good thing about December.
I was able to get five reviews done on my writing site. I try to review at least six items weekly which helps me get points to maintain my membership along with the membership of one or two others if I can. So, it’s a benefit for me to get those six reviews in weekly. (I got the sixth one in yesterday).
With those reviews I wrote 848 words.
In a different blog than this, the first one I had on WordPress, http://www.muchadoaboutmanythings.wordpress.com. I wrote a small tidbit this morning before heading to work and was able to get 434 words on that.
I would like to do at least as well as I did yesterday as I was able to get over the daily goal of 1667 words per day. I was a bit behind already, so even with the extra words, I’m still behind. I’m not doing too bad though, and even though I really wanted to take this evening off and do other things, I feel I did fairly well overall. If I keep talking about nothing at all, I might find myself getting closer to the mark for the day.
One thing I was wondering about today was how does everyone that takes part in nano get anything done around their house? I think the majority of people are always writing or at least as much as is possible. Some I know have small children at home that they must tend to, while others still have to work.
Last month, it rained a lot in our area. Now that would have been a great month to do nano, as I didn’t have to go out and clean windows during the rainfall. This month, it’s been fairly dry. While that’s great for business and paying bills, it doesn’t leave as much time for fitting the writing in.
So then decisions need to be made. Do I write, or do I take care of things like bills and getting work done? I think the answer is obvious. It will be nice when I can write more than the rest, but that time isn’t here as yet.
I’m done here for the night since I’ve at least made the minimum goal. Hopefully I can get more words in eventually, but I’m happy as I’ve been writing each and every day, something I’ve not done well before. Yeah!!
586 words, a total of 1868 for the day. This post was started several days ago, and posted on Sunday, November 11. I would have been earlier had I not had to work two jobs while doing nano.
