Monday Rambling - NaNoWriMo and Sad Canadian Thanksgiving

Hi everyone,

Welcome back to my senseless rambling.

This weekend it was Canadian Thanksgiving. In general, it's a super busy weekend for me. The Quebec Comic-Con is usually happening at that time, and since I work at a comicbook shop, we have table set up and it's a busy weekend. And then I also always have a big family dinner. I try to split my time evenly between the two events. I get back home to see my family and I go walk in the woods and enjoy one of the last weekends with pretty autumn colors.

This year, I didn't have that. It sucks. It sucks to keep talking about everything that sucks because of COVID. Fall is my favorite season. It's football season and family time, it's pretty colors and cute outfits, booths and coats, sweater weather and hot cocoa. It's crunchy leaves and cold mornings.

There's still crunchy leaves and cold mornings. But there's just something missing. It's not fall without Thanksgiving dinner and a Sunday football game cheering for the Rouge et Or. It's not a good fall without the people.

Well, this is depressing...

Let's change subject! I've been thinking about NaNoWriMo because it's so close. For those of you that don't know NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month. Basically, it's a thing were you write 50,000 words in one month, November, specifically. You can track your word count with their website, and it's a really cool event, and I've tried it many many times. I think two years ago, with Claire Years and Holt Conundrum I kinda did it.

Anyway, each year, when November comes I think about NaNoWriMo and new stories. I know I shouldn't start new stories. I know I should be working on what I have on Wattpad already. But I can't stop this desire to start something new, from scratch.

And I can't help wanting to do that uploading one chapter every day thing, I did two years ago. Those were a good few months.

Right now I have two stories in my head, once about a summer music festival and another about a body positive reality tv show kinda thing. It might sound bleh, but I swear, what I have in my head right now sounds pretty fun.

Anyway, I'll probably just try to upload more of my on-going stories, not to get tracked down and booed at for not uploading Smirking Jerk often.

Speaking of which, I should get back to writing. Thanks for sticking around, and to all my fellow Canadians, I hope you still managed to have a nice Thanksgiving.
