NANO's Over? But I'm Not Done Yet!!

Yeah, oops :D Well, I did get 2200 something words - so, not a total waste. Here's something I've learned from the last two years.....If you want to do NaNo, do NOT move in November :D

Last year, we moved into our new house on the night of Oct 31st. So unpacking took up all of my time until about the middle of November. Normally, I'd have the whole house unpacked the first day, but this time my children were older and somehow, things didn't go quite as smoothly with them under foot :)

This year, we get the news my husband is being transferred and a flurry of house hunting, school calling, early intervention education program phone calls, note writing, and faxing, shopping, organizing, trashing, and packing begins again.

Bottom line - if you are going to try and write around 2000 words a day for 30 days, I'd highly recommend not trying to move your family 2000 miles away while doing it :D

How did everyone else do?

You poor lady! I think you're doing pretty darn good considering. ;)

LOL it's really not too bad. I'm packing very slowly - you know, nothing like procrastinating and then just chucking everything in a box as fast as you can :D I guess I really should get going though - moving day is sneaking up fast!
