Hello, my neglected lovelies. I come bearing apologies and news. Also, possibly carpal tunnel syndrome, as you will soon see:
1) I am doing NaNoWriMo.
2) This means that I have to write about 1667 words per day for the next 30 days.
3) I broke up with my boyfriend.
See how I tucked that last one in at the end there? I bet you didn’t even catch it.
Anyway, they say keeping busy is the best cure for heartache, so I’m diving right into this project. It will definitely be extremely poor, as any one-month draft must be. But hey, most of my favorite writers are big believers in the Shitty First Draft, so hopefully, this will be to my benefit. Anyway, I’ll write a lot of words. I love words. They’re like typographic sprinkles. Mmmmm.

My bet is that lack of boyfriend will equal greater blogging. I base this on my expereince with the opposite: that aquiring a boyfriend has made me into a horribly lazy blogger. Have fun with your sprinkles.
I saw your sister a couple of weekends ago and it was lovely. I asked after you. Sorry to hear about the boy, sweets.
I wrote a novel. I guess it took about a month, but only if I spread it out over six years.
Less boyfriend = more writing time. You’ll hit those 50,000 words in no time!
Then, when your book is published, you can write a blog dedicated to him and say, “how do you like me now?” 😉
