Flunked!

Well that’s me finished with NaNoWriMo for this year. I must admit that my heart just wasn’t in it. I just wanted to knit and crochet and having joined a challenge on Ravelry, called appropriately NaKnitNo, in which I had to do 30,000 stitches during the month of November, I was constantly tempted to leave my writing. I did eventually trump up 23,000 plus words and I know more about my characters and where they are going, and one or two little bits of the jigsaw story have slotted together quite nicely…so all is not lost. I knew I could do it, as I had managed it last year, so I didn’t have anything to prove, but it would have been good to accomplish it again. Nevermind, there is always next year. I did manage the thirty thousand stitches though 🙂

One of the other problems I had was thanks to the post office. Whether here or in the US, two of my swaps failed to arrive at their destination, which meant I had to do them all over again. I thought i had cleared all my swaps ready for writing, so this was a nuisance and also took up extra time. One of the swaps has arrived, thank goodness and I am hoping that the other will arrive very shortly. These are the replacement swaps…onne for an ATC Frog (and I did extras) and one for a Cactus Postcard. I have sent the postcard in an envelope, having emailed the recipent and asked her what she felt about not getting it stamped. We agreed an envelope might be safer, so I included an ATC for her as well, as she had been very patient.
