I knew it would happen.

When I signed up to the challenge of NaBloPoMo, I already anticipated the end of the month payroll and bookkeeping tasks, Thanksgiving, and a visit from the grandchildren.  Throw in all the cleaning, cooking, Christmas decorating, cookie making, and planning time for the next holiday and you have NoMo NaBloPoMo.

It’s all good though.  I did manage to write for most of the month.  I had neglected my blog for months and needed to get back to writing.  It’s just like everything else.  Once you start to neglect a skill or a talent or an activity that you really enjoy, it can fall by the way side and sometimes disappear from your schedule.

Here are some ideas I almost wrote about.

Hiding the evidence.  I may use this one for Christmas.


Cooking Injuries. and how to avoid them.


I See Faces.   No illustration available yet.

If I complete one more post tomorrow, I will have blogged 22 days out of 30, roughly 2/3.   I may not have reached my goal, but I did show improvement!

  1. I signed up for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) this year (I ‘won’ last year, completing a 50,000 word novel in 30 days) but found ‘life’ got in the way (big time!); I managed only 15,000 words. BUT I wrote more than I would have if I hadn’t made the commitment. As my mother would have said, ‘Something is better than nothing’. Congrats on reaching two-thirds of your goal. I enjoyed all your posts!
