I must be some special kind of crazy. This month, as many of you know, is nanowrimo month, or National Novel Writing Month. It’s pretty self explanatory, but the basic idea is, if you decide to participate, you try to write 1,667 words everyday so that at the end of the month you have a fifty thousand word novel.
So considering I haven't written more than a couple thousand words of fiction in the past entire year (I know I know!!! I bring procrastination to a new level) this commitment was quite the undertaking.
On top of that, I have a Spanish interpreter certification test that I have paid a couple hundred bucks for that is the first week of December. I need to be practicing my Spanish everyday for that to not be a waste of money.
And then on top of that, we’re moving this month. I have one month to travel to a city three hours away, find an apartment, pack and move by the end of November.
So thats three big commitments in a small amount of time. So far so good, but then again, we’re only nine days in.
A few people have asked how I’ve been using my bullet journal to stay on top of nanowrimo. In fact, it’s because I have so many big commitments this month that I am loving my bujo so much. It helps me stay on track with getting everything done everyday.
