Irony and Naive Past Me

Oh, life. You do play the best jokes. 

Me Last Night: It’s good to be blogging again. I can’t believe the post I just put up (about the craziness of my three jobs getting in the way of writing) was only my third for this year. That’s kind of embarrassing. I mean, look at how much I used to post back in the early years.

*reads a few old posts*

*finds this one about moving from Maryland to Oregon* 

*reads this optimistic prediction of my future Oregon life and work:*

"I'm actually looking forward to having more time to blog and write once we're settled, since I'll be leaving my three jobs behind and searching for just one."

*bursts into laughter that is only a tiny bit bitter*

Speaking of not learning from past missteps, anyone want to join me for Camp NaNoWriMo this July? Just kidding with the negativity; you know I love me some NaNoWriMo (whether or not it's good for my project, eh), AND most importantly, the camp version allows you to choose your own goal, so I can set mine low enough that I don't sacrifice anything for word count. I'm thinking 20,000 words (because I was aiming for 500 words a day, but then 20K sounded nicer and rounder than 15.5K. I am already falling into my own trap, methinks). 

Let me know if you're going to camp!


  1. I'm going to Camp, too - decided pretty recently so keeping my goal loose and the project kind of vague. A number of people in Blogging Land are going to Camp. Should be fun! Good luck to you! :)
