When did this happen? Where did 2011 go? And how did it go so quickly?
Yes. It just hit me a couple of hours ago that the holidays are upon us. Yes. I was aware of all of the months passing by, that October gave way to November a few days ago. But then again, I wasn’t. I guess I get so caught up in life, writing, and deadlines that time just sails right on by without a whole lot of awareness on my part.
This year should prove to be even more interesting since I committed to the NaNoWriMo challenge. For those who don’t know what this is, it’s actually (Na)tional (No)vel (Wri)ting (Mo)nth (or…National Novel Writing Month). And you commit to writing a 50,000 word novel in 30 days.
In November. With Thanksgiving three weeks away! What was I thinking?!
Guess it’s time to get very organized…which could be a problem since I’m not even minimally organized most days. Time to make use of the cork board. Time to make lists and schedules…and see if my doctor will prescribe a sedative (kidding!).
While I continue to wrap my head around the fact that the holidays have snuck up on me (again), take a minute to check out this clip from an old television series called WKRP in Cincinnati. There’s a longer version on Google Videos and YouTube, but too long for the blog.
Are you prepared for the holidays? Or has it taken you by surprise, too?
