2009 will be known as the year that defeated me on so many fronts. Work is not one of those, but is a great contributor to the overall loss of the battle.
The biggest loss for me this year was my writing. I did not complete my NaNo novel this year. I didn’t even make it past 11k words, and it was not due to lack of story at all. It was actually due to lack of time and energy.
My daughter and I have declared June 2010 our personal NaNo month, as we both want to finish our NaNo novels, but can’t see time before then to actually get to it.
I am going on a long-overdue holiday at the coast soon and will be offline for the remainder of the year. I am going to use the time away to relax, switch off and empty out the buckets, so that I can tackle 2010 and everything I have planned for it.
