In a coffee shop this morning, trying to catch up on my NaNoWriMo word count.
NaNoWriMo is going pretty well. I'm slightly behind on word count from where I want to be, but I had a busy weekend planned and figured that would be the case. Really looking to get a lot of writing done this week.
Not a bad first day writing for NaNoWriMo. I didn't write as much as I wanted to, but I made some key decisions that will make it easier to write going forward.
I've decided that I'm going to participate in NaNoWriMo. Giving up all social media – except for Micro.Blog – for the month of November in an attempt to carve out time for writing. Wish me luck.
It worked perfectly in my head. The rough sketches looked good. And now that I've built the design in Illustrator, I don't like it. Back to the drawing board.
Getting used to a new schedule. My first week not having to drop kids off to school or daycare in the morning. The first major change to my morning routine in 13 years. Feels really strange...
I'm seriously contemplating writing a novel for NaNoWriMo this November. I've got a solid idea and I'm excited, but I'm wondering if I can carve the time out of my already busy life to write 50,000 words.
LinkedIn's algorithm thinks I'm a good fit for a job 45 minutes away selling cosmetics at a department store.
Writing a post on my own site to post to Micro.Blog is different. I refine and edit more than I would for Twitter or Facebook, because it lives on my site. Another nice side effect of hosting my own microblog.
Got to sleep in because the kids are at Grandma's house. Of course, we woke up at 5:30 anyway... (And thankfully went back to bed.)
I settled on a structure for my microblog on Squarespace. I'm going to keep it separate from my main Articles feed. I'm working on a longer post about Micro.Blog and Squarespace.
Testing a different feed structure for Micro.Blog and my Squarespace site. Trying to figure out how I want to structure things.
Testing my Squarespace Microblog with micro.blog. Still not 100% sure how I'm going to integrate the two sites.
