I have officially been put on journal and stationary purchasing restriction. *sigh
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE stationary, thank you notes, decorative or personalized letter pages, envelopes, journal writing books, and even sketch pads. Oh, criminy.
As if I don’t have enough clutter circling around my desk. *whispers… but there’s still room in the blank notebook bin!
Trees in the forest are quivering as I write this, I know. I’m a monster. Terrible person. Hush.
There is just something about putting a pen to the page that just feels nice. Cathartic. Meditative, even.
And with Camp NaNoWriMo just around the corner, let’s face it, how can I possibly be expected to refrain from buying more highlighters and stickers?! It’s a nightmare I tell ya. A nightmare.
I truly think that it’s the little things we should consider finding joy in and for me its staaaaaa-tionnnnn-aaaaaary! Echos. Echos. Echos. Did you hear the echoing voice calling out?
Oh, dear Lord… *slaps forehead
Did I lose you at Camp NaNoWriMo? Well, if you recall, I did an annual writing event last year – for the first time – called NaNoWriMo. An acronym that stands for National Novel Writing Month. During the month of November, writers from all over attempt to write 50,000 words in 30 days. While I have written books with as much verbiage; I had not done so within a month. So, I thought I’d add a fun challenge to my writing by joining in on the fun!
Watch me track my progress and see how I did in the video below!
Now that spring is upon us, daylight saving’s time has switched back, and I’m overcome with an aching to wear tank tops again… It’s also time for Camp NaNoWriMo. Another writing event that I will be attending.
Again, for the first time.
The goal in this event? I’ve given myself a 30,000 count of words to attain. If you watch the video above, you’ll see why…
If I can accomplish this smaller goal, then I will be able to add an additional goal for a quieter project that I am keeping under wraps until it’s release. It’s a non-fiction and that’s all I’ll be able to spill on that.
Camp NaNoWriMo will be the same duration as the NaNo event in November; except that Camp NaNo occurs in April. If you are a writer, or aspiring writer, add me as a writing buddy.
We can help motivate each other!
I surely won’t need any stationary, as most of my writing is done on my computer. But, I simply cannot help myself when I see those adorable, blank notebooks that I clearly MUST add to my collection! No, you must not.
As I prepare to begin my writer’s retreat, I am besought with the urge to visit Ross, and Target for a few more blank books. No, you’re not. To creatively organize my month with colored markers and marvelous stickers of station. Hearts, moons, stars and rainbows. All unnecessary.
Oh. I’m doing it.
You’re on restriction.
Tattle tale. I’m doing it, so there.
Oh! And never forget the glitter…
