I began May with good intentions. Following the A-Z Challenge, I vowed to blog more regularly and May 1st saw the start of May You Write Your Novel (or MYWYN) – 80k words in 80 days. Things kind of fell apart at the end of last week. Let the excuses flow:
I went to Filey for a long weekend, which kind of put a stop to the great start I made on MYWYN. We had a great time despite the erratic weather and I think the break did me good. The fresh air seemed to blow the cobwebs from my mind and gave me a much needed energy boost. Returning on Monday afternoon, I had to tackle the mountain of washing and ironing that a mini break entails.
On top of that, my three year old started nursery today -*sob* – so last night and this morning I was a little emotional and not much good for anything. After today’s hour long session went amazingly well (he didn’t want to leave) he starts full time tomorrow. I’m confident that I can spend a good chunk of the three hours he is there writing.
So, while I may be down, I am certainly not out. I’ll get my blogging and writing back on track and I’ll get there in the end.
