So, a lot of stuff has been going on in my life lately. NaNoWriMo, of course, and the college courses with my grandpa, but there’s also this. Some of you already knew about it, but I thought I’d make it public on my blog since my mom did. (Actually, I’m just directing your to her blog post, since it says it all so much better than I could, but still.) Between trips to the hospital and having to keep the little children quiet when Dad is resting, things have been incredible hectic for all of us and my schedule hasn’t been neat and tidy, the way I always like it to be.
For the first time in three NaNoWriMos, I’m struggling to keep up the word count. Well, not exactly struggling, but sometimes I have to go two or three days without writing and then play catch-up the next day. (Yesterday I wrote over 4,000 words.) Though I’m happy to say that my college work isn’t suffering.
But what has been put on hold is my campaign to comment more on people’s blog posts, and I feel bad about that. I’m also not as communicative when it comes to emails and answering the comments people put on my own posts. (Keep them coming, though, if you can/want to, because they are a wonderful encouragement.) I do read your posts, though. Each and every one. I rarely, if ever, comment these days, but I do take time to read almost every blog post that comes up in my feed and they always brighten up my day. Blogs like Hamlette’s Soliloquy, The Edge of the Precipice, Wonderland Creek, inklings press, and a few others (the ones I’ve named, however, are the ones I read most faithfully). Honestly, you guys write the coolest, sweetest, most awesome posts in the blogoverse. I enjoy them all. Keep up the amazing work!
What has been going on in my life other than writing stuff, school stuff, and serious stuff? Well, my siblings and just finished binge watching Season 3 of Road to Avonlea. (Our library had every season except Season 3, so I had to get that one through inter-library loan after we’d watched all the others.) I’d have to say it’s the best season. Plenty of interesting episodes, plenty of cute Gus + Felicity moments, and plenty of Recognizable Guest Stars (two, anyway – Christopher Lloyd and Jonathon Crombie WHAT). Have you ever seen Road to Avonlea? What are your thoughts about the show as a whole and all the lovely characters in particular? I’d love to discuss it/them with you in the comments! (And we also re-watched the two Anne movies because LOVELINESS. I honestly love the movies more than the books.)
Anyway, I’ll leave it at that for now. I want to work on my second ‘Ask Me Anything’ post and watch some Disney videos that Ashley posted on her blog.
