Sidetracked

This has been a good year for a lot of things, but not for noveling.
Oh well.
I've been having some good fun lately that have prevented me from blogging or NaNoveling regularly. This weekend, for example, could have been spent virtuously laboring, but instead I went up to a friend's cabin in the mountains and hung out and snowboarded and whatnot. It was not my usual weekend thing, and that was a very good thing. I had lots of fun and was not at all virtuous.
Yay! It's about time! I've been working too much of late. I've been noticing a need for ever more frequent stress-relief.
If that means I won't "win" NaNoWriMo this year, then so be it.

Hip Hip Hooray! Good for you Annie! There is a time and a place for writing and there is a time and a place for living it up! And your little sister wants to know more about the choice of the word "virtuous", hmmmmmm? :-)

My, with vivid imaginations like you guys have, what more could I add? :)

Stacey said...

You're the one who used "virtuos"...besides, you know I was sheltered my whole life and couldn't possible think of anything not virtuous. that's why I have to live vicariously through you :)

Wow. Now I know how to forment suspicion: use the word "virtuous" in a blog entry and then let the imaginations fly.

You guys are too much. I don't believe for a minute that you live vicariously through me, 'cause you would have died of boredom long ago.

Don't make me start another novel just for you guys.
