December is my new NaNoWriMo!

Well, the God Murphy swooped in and smote me with lightning bolts right before the Thanksgiving holiday dashing any chances I had of making my 50,000 word goal for NaNoWriMo.  Now, I’m not blaming it all on Mr. Murphy.  I understand had I spent my time better, I would have been able to withstand his heartless blow.  So I take full responsibility for that.  But as it stands, I had a pretty good excuse, as far as excuses go.  An expedited work project landed on my desk at the last minute, something that I’m still working on trying to finish a week and a half later.  (The bane of court reporters is trials that you reported two years ago and can barely remember can be ordered up by the Court of Appeals on an expedited basis when you least expect it.  Blech.)

But I am undeterred.  Who says it’s gotta be done in November, gosh darn it?!  I have decided to seize authority and move NaNoWriMo to December.  (But for everyone who completed it in November, CONGRATULATIONS!  YOU GUYS ROCK!!)

My goal for this month will be to finish my 50,000 words by Christmas.  I would like to have a rough draft ready for my husband to read so he can see I’m not just going to Starbucks every day to sip chai tea lattes and listen to jaunty tunes.  I actually do write.

So I will start posting word counts starting tomorrow.  I swear!  I’m this close to being done with this crazy appeal transcript.  <snort>  And I will try my best to post daily on this blog.  I hate to disappoint my legions of fans. <lol>  I kill me.
