December Day! December Day!
That didn’t sound quite as exciting as “May Day! May Day!” – not short enough and poor rhyming scheme, I suppose. It’s the first of December and NaNoWriMo is over. What with all my excuses and Skyrim playing, I didn’t make it to the coveted winners’ circle this year. 20K words short of winning. Damn. I’ll get you next year, my novel. I’ll get you.
I love how the badge design shows a beach backdrop… it almost sends a message that writing is a vacation. It couldn’t be farther from the truth. Writing frantically, on a deadline and with a required word count, is no day at the beach. So to professional writers out there, three cheers to all of you!
To console my disappointment, I made coconut balls, which are actually macaroons that turned out looking like white fuzzy balls. I’m not much of a coconut fan unless it’s covered in chocolate or part of a cake. For a quick sweet fix, macaroons hit the spot. A few pieces will be enough to lift my down but not defeated writer’s soul. Thankfully, I’ve got a cute housemate who loves coconuts. The rest is all yours Hubbs!
