As is natural, not a week into June and all my plans go kaput. I think I’m finally recovered enough to try and pick up the pieces. But as expected, nothing ever works out nicely.
Short version: the “NaNoWriMo in July” project is getting pushed back ten days.
Long version below:
So I had the good fortune to counsel and lecture at a small writing conference. Which, while rewarding and fruitful, lost me a week to its demands. Afterward I got home to discover I had contacted some form of “Convention Crud” that grew from a “oh this is just a cold–I’ll tough it out,” to “WHY AM I COUGHING SO MUCH?” Finally broke down and went to the doctor on Sunday, who declared that I had full bore Bronchitis, and needed the evil meds. So now, three days removed from that, I look up at the calendar and discover that June is not nearly as long as I thought it was.
So, where does this leave the Writing Projects?
Well the actual writing portion can easily be pushed back. If I change the end date to August 10th, I can push back the start date to July 9th, and still have a full 30 days to work.
This does mean I’ll need to finish the prewriting articles in very quick succession, but it’s only fair that some cramming happens–besides if I don’t finish this up quickly, I’ll be bumping back into the start of school. Which is what this project was hoping to avoid.
So yeah, stuff gets pushed back a few days. You guys get several articles very quickly. And I get off my sick ass and start writing again. Everyone wins!
