Hi everyone! On this New Year’s Eve, I’ll be doing everything that needs to be done for this last day of 2012, mainly, the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: My 2012 in Pictures, the WordPress annual report, some ramblings on the 2012-13 transition…
First of all, for this week’s photo challenge, it was suggested that we present 12 photos at least in a gallery to make an overview of 2012, but I’m going to break the rules and thus here’s my contribution:
In a few hours, as predicted by the Mayans – or more precisely, the media – we will all be die. It is the end of our world.
Do you believe in any of this? I don’t. In about 2 hours, here it will be the 22/12/12 and there still hasn’t been any tsunami warning or violent cyclones or incoming flood or deadly earthquakes… Or not even snow. (NB: it never snows in tropical regions, so if there will ever be snowing here in Mauritius, I believe it might be a reason to get worried.)
On the 1st November, instead of attacking the blank page and starting this ruthless challenge of writing 50,000 in a month, I finished my last two exams papers and ended up sleeping. It was only yesterday that I started to write, and my NaNo statistics are well below the expected word count… for the time being.
The longer we stay and mingle in this wide world of blogging, the more I meet people and read blogs and the more I am confused when I receive a blog award. Why? Because there are so many of you that I’d love to give awards too… too many! And I can’t feel like choosing only a bunch of you guys, so I guess I’ll change the rules a bit and I just want to say thanks:
The adventure is over. We, writers, are back to our normal rate of a hundreds of words per day instead of the massive 1,600+ words that we’ve had to write everyday for one whole month to finally win this year’s August Camp NaNoWriMo.
Hey, that’s mine 😉
I was lucky that the first two weeks were relatively easy because I was in holidays so I had a great start (4000 words on the very first day!). And when I compare this year’s performance to last year’s in November, I can clearly see a difference: I improved at that crazy thing! Here are my statistics:
The holidays are now officially over here in Mauritius and the 3rd and last term of the school year has begun today. Let me tell you that the last week of my holidays were totally filled up: going out with friends, with family (coming from overseas), keeping up with tuition, and with Camp NaNoWriMo of course.
My worst fear then was to lose control.
I’m sure most of you have felt as such at least once in your lifetime: the feeling of being too busy, having too much to do and not having enough time.
