30 Minute obsessions is a podcast—perhaps soon one day to return—but meanwhile enjoy these miscellaneous thoughts in the blog!

NaNoWriMo failure

I signed up for NaNoWriMo for the first time this year but failed miserably.

Why? At last, the truth can be told: 

  • I got a peritonsillar abscess the first week that made me very sick.

  • During treatment for the abscess, my writing machine fell into water and was out of commission for three days, over a weekend.

I was never able to really recover from those setbacks. Took the wind out of my sails, it did!
