Still waiting on one full and one R&R
NANOWRIMO- has handed my arse back to me, tied in a pretty white bow made from my very own flag of surrender. I’m sad to report that I pretty much stopped writing the first week. My competitive side kept trying to make me go back to it but the truth is I don’t think I can write anything I’ll be proud of in 30 days and time is too precious for me to waste it on a project I’m not 100% in love with.
REAL LIFE- I’m currently doing Thanksgiving with my French students. It’s amazing how many French people have no concept of what Thanksgiving is or why we celebrate it. I’ve heard it referred to as the ‘American Christmas’ or ‘the victory over Indians day’. These people must have gotten their lines crossed somewhere and it is a personal pleasure of mine to teach French kids the truth about this fantastic holiday.
BLOGGING- Thank you guys so much for all of your kind comments about my blogging breakdown. I’m still sticking to a Monday/Wednesday/Friday schedule even though time for visiting and commenting has gone down considerably. The thing is, living overseas, I don’t usually post my blog until 1 pm (7 am US time) in order to take part in the usual visiting/commenting banter with the Americans doing their morning blogging. But now that I’m working four afternoons a week, I have to post my blog via phone and don’t get to actually sit down to catch up until after the kiddies are in bed at night and by then I’ve pretty much missed everything going on in bloglandL Hoping to catch up over the holiday vacation!
How are all of you doing? What are your querying/writing/real life/blogging stats?
