NaNoWriMo

So I made the commitment to participate in NaNoWriMo 2012. That’s NAtional NOvel WRIting MOnth where I try to write 50,000 words in a month (with a daily goal of around 1637 words.) Since I had already started my novel about 8 months ago, I’m using this first week or so to rewrite what I have so far and once I read about chapter 8 or so, I’m going to start chopping it up and getting back on track. Somewhere along the line I went off on a tangent that I couldn’t bring back to my original outline.

Anyway, since announcing this decision 2 days ago, my kids have taken it upon themselves to go absolutely bat shit crazy as soon as I sit down at the computer. I have broken up a record number of fights, helped with more geometry  homework, located at least 46 lost items and made French fries, toast, and a yogurt and honey facial mask all during MY turn at the computer.

Frankly, I’m exhausted.

And I’ve come to the realization that one of two things is going to happen before 30 November ever rolls around:  I’m going to quit AGAIN and probably never finish this damn book OR I’m going to put all 4 of the remaining kids up for adoption.

Option B is looking really good right now.
