Just Another Manic Monday

It's Monday! Which means that my new post is up over at Twenties Hacker! This week I attempt a too-good-to-be-true 2-Ingredient Pumpkin Muffin recipe. Which I totally turned into a 3-ingredient recipe. Because that's how I roll.

It also means I haven't blogged in a week. And for that, I am sorry. I've been running around and, admittedly, focusing a bit of attention towards my baking posts to ensure that I get off to a good start on those (also: baking!!) and this, and that, and the other thing, and nobody really cares but my point is: I'M ALIVE.

I'm also really debating whether or not I want to do NaBloPoMo this year. I really haven't been feeling the blogging vibes lately (which is probably why I should do it) and I've been spending a lot more time in... the real world. HOLY SHIT RIGHT. So, I don't know. If I were to sign up for the official NaBloPoMo thinger, then I am eligible for prizes and shit. I like me some prizes. Unfortunately I can't fucking figure it out because NaBloPoMo has been absorbed by BlogHer and BlogHer's site confuses the everliving fuck out of me. So maybe I won't.

I also got a really thoughtful comment over on my other blog (you guys remember it, right? Totally behind on that one, too) which I'm not going to try to paraphrase but the gist was: if you want to be a writer then write something. Duh. She also encouraged me to try NaNoWriMo. I'm not delusional enough to think I can crap out an entire novel next month, but... but... what if I did? I think you need to write just shy of 2000 words per day - which, let's face it, I can do easily, because have you SEEN the length of my blog posts? - but the trick is to make them all coherent and shit. I'm afraid of it, to be honest. Plus it would probably be cheating to work on something I've already started. Maybe. I don't know the rules. Yet this commenter (who happened to actually BE a novelist) was so emphatic in her suggestion that I'm kind of almost considering it.

But there's no way in shit I'm doing both. I'm not that crazy. I'm crazy enough to do one or the other but not both. Unless I blog every day with updates on the novel. Which would be kind of meta but also kind of boring and lame.

Whatever, I don't know. It's another reason I haven't been blogging. I'm too psyched out to write anything. Go figure.

In other news, I think my cat is possessed. That's a different post, though.

DO IIT. The novel writing one, that is. It doesn't have to be coherent, just get words on (proverbial) paper. That's the point (i think). Spew first, edit later.

I'd say write a novel. DO IT. It's not meant to be perfect, it's just meant to be done and then you go back and make it pretty and then you get it published and then you make millions!
