When all I feel like doing is hibernating…
One of the downfalls to this time of year. Thanks to the end of Daylight’s saving, it always feels later than it really is and the mama bear in me just wants to cozy on down with the kiddos and not budge until Spring. Unfortunately, that’s not how books get written! I got sidetracked for a moment with the genealogy stuff, which has already become frustrating again, losing its appeal. Does anyone here watch the show “Who Do You Think You Are?”
I love that show, but it also grates on my nerves, because like most family historians, I don’t have the money or means to just cruise across country and meet with a professional genealogist – whom, by the way – requires a retainer and charges by the hour like a freaking lawyer! The minimal retainer for an Ancestry.com professional is a hot Grand. Sorry, I must of left that wad of cash in my other pants….
Anywho, I’m kind of kicking myself in the keister for not partaking in NaNoWriMo this year. I have a few stories outlined that I could have put to the test this month. Of course, that doesn’t mean that I can’t still work on them, I just think it’s the psychological momentum of NaNo that makes it seem like your accomplishments are that much more spectacular (when we all know that writing is a major accomplishment in and of itself!) Becauuussse, we’re human and therefore, mostly masochists who work better under pressure?? Yeah, your guess is as good as mine. Maybe it’s just the word counter thingy!
