November is a busy month for me anyway. That’s what I told myself. I won’t be doing NaNoWriMo this year. I have decided that I can’t commit. I don’t have the courage.
Commitment means I have to follow through. I can’t agree to walk your dog and not do it. I can’t promise to bake you a cake and not bring you three. I feel awful when I miss a doctor’s appointment, and I am paying him money for the pleasure of my company.
There is my paperback in progress, my birthday, Thanksgiving, preparing for Christmas, shopping, a mini vacation planned in this beautiful Florida weather on the boat.
I thought about putting a little text window of some sort on my blog and updating it every Sunday with my word progress, just so my readers know that I haven’t abandoned writing this month. Maybe I will. I applaud each and every one of you who have the courage to have taken the plunge.
