My creative energy feels like its been snuffed out. I went into NaNo quite optimistically with all the enthusiasm of Rowley from Diary of a Wimpy Kid on the first day of school. But alas, the steam has run out and I keep staring at my blinking cursor, waiting for something to happen. It's okay, I made it past the 25,000 words mark. I think I'll get around 30,000 when all's said and done...which isn't bad, but I had hopes of reaching the grand 50,000. Oh well, maybe next year?
Meanwhile I've been busy entertaining out of town guests and then being an out of town guest. Thanksgiving break was awesome and it was great to see family and have delicious food. I even made a pumpkin cheesecake that turned out beyond amazing. I am quite proud of myself, and it was devoured by the masses. Woohoo! All in all it has been a good November...I'm just a little freaked out that December is going to be here in a few short days. I'm so NOT ready for the Christmas madness that takes over all the shopping centers. I am, however, ready for the Christmas music (it always cheers me up, even in the middle of summer when it's 90 degrees outside) and awesome movies, whether they're classics like Meet Me In St. Louis, or those awesome original Lifetime ones. I really hope all of you other NaNoers are having more luck than me, and if not, don't beat yourself up over it, as long as you gave it your all then you have nothing to be ashamed of.
