It's NaNo Again, and I Might Be a Tad Bit Crazy

So a couple months ago, it was taking FOREVER for library books to come in at the second library I use. I was putting a few on hold every week, thinking they'd trickle in eventually, and well, I might get to read such and such book in a few months.

Well, then they mostly fixed the problem that was making it take so long (though I've still got one that's been in transit since AUGUST), and a BUNCH started coming in. So now my account summary looks like this:

Also, a few months ago, I decided to preorder the Royal Ranger book that comes out tomorrow. Because I've been anxiously awaiting it and scouring the internet for news about it long before it was even announced. Will and Maddie are going undercover as jongleurs! I'm so excited about it! And hoping it'll actually come today. Sometimes preorders do that.

I also put a book on hold at my main library. Which is currently sitting unread because I've got others that will be due sooner.

And then I decided to do NaNo. I need motivation to actually sit down and finish draft 2 of Acktorek 2. I fully intend to finish this draft (estimated 40,000 words) by the end of the month.

I committed to two sign waving shifts on election day, and then remembered, hey, that's during NaNo.

There'll be Thanksgiving later on this month.

I'm participating in Black Friday sales again this year.

And there are a lot of changes going on at work.

But I fully intend to get all these books read, finish this draft, fulfill my sign waving commitment, and keep up with work and teaching (I mean, I have to do that), and watch The Mandalorian every week 😉, so I very well might be crazy.

And if I'm barely around the internet this month, I'm not dead, I'm just swamped with things to get done because I'm crazy.


  1. Wow! You are going to be very busy! I pray NaNo and everything else goes great for you!!!

    That Peter Pan gif is PERFECT for this month! XD

    I'm hopefully going to start reading the Royal Ranger books next year, I read all of the first series this year and LOVED IT ALL!!! ^_^

    I did something similar with library books. I put several on hold thinking they'd trickle in like they normally do, but nope. I now have about as many as you do checked out, and I'm trying to finish my first draft of the novel I'm writing by the end of the month on top of the slew of books. O.o XD

    Baby Yoda is SOOOO cute!!! <333

    1. Thanks!

      RR 2 & 3 weren't my favorites because there was barely any Will and even less Halt, but they were still good. Maddie's fun. And I have my copy of The Missing Prince now, but I haven't had time to read it yet (it has plenty of Will, according to my mom and sister)! :(

      It's crazy. Too many books, too little time! But I'm not letting myself put any more on hold until I'm finished with these. XD

      BABY YODA!!!!!! This season is really good so far too, especially the latest episode. The connections to the animated shows make me so happy. :)

    2. Oh, bummer about Will and Halt, at least they were still good! Thanks for telling me! :D Ooh! I hope you get to read it soon!

      I know right? Lol, you're doing better than me! I saw my library had a copy of Dust by Kara Swanson, a book I've been wanting to read for a long time, so I went ahead and put it on hold thinking I'd be on the waitlist for awhile. Nope! #1 I should probably stay off my library's website until after November. XD

      I'm so happy you're enjoying it! That's so cool there are connections to the animated shows! Makes me want to watch it even more! :D

      How's your NaNo coming? I don't have an account, but if you wanted, would you like to be buddies over email or hangouts? I know NaNo's half over so no worries if you don't want to. :D
