It seems a little bit like the House of Crushed Dreams around here lately. quanta was laid off a little over two and a half weeks ago. He got a fabulous severance package, so we are just fine money-wise. His job search isn’t going really well though, or maybe it would be better to say that things aren’t proceeding as quickly as he would like. Honestly, he is bored out of his mind.
As for me, I think I am going to gracefully withdraw from NaNoWriMo. I am not the least bit inspired. I started writing the story that I had laid out a plot for and hit about 2,000 words before I became disenchanted with it. So, I switched plots and made it to 7,000 words. Now I have run that plot into the ground. I feel very disappointed, and rather discouraged. But, I will participate again next year, taking more time creating my characters and plot outline before NaNoWriMo begins. Also, I think my talent is moving more towards non-fiction writing, which I am more then happy with.
