It seems like every night before I fall asleep at about 12:24am, I think of a thousand things to blog about. Plus, those ideas all seem so interesting at the time. Unfortunately, I don’t really remember them once I wake up, and even if I do remember the ideas, they really aren’t as novel as I thought them to be the night before.
The writing for NaNoWriMo is going very slow, and it doesn’t look like I’m going to make the 50,000 words. I’m being to hard on myself when it comes to the writing. I’m trying to edit too much; I’ve got too many negative thoughts, like “My stories aren’t important,” or “I’m an awful writer.” So what happens is that I either withdraw and stop writing completely or that I write crap and delete it, which is ridiculous. I want to have faith in this process, but I know that I’ve pretty much sabotaged my possible success. I understand so many other people who are doing NaNoWriMo feel the same way as me, but I’m just frustrated with myself. Lets all keep our fingers crossed that I make the word count.
So, I’ve got big news. If you follow me on facebook, you’re probably sick of my complaining about this and my millions of questions about it, but if not then you should probably know……that I bought a MacBook Pro!I won’t be able to afford to send my future children to college, but at least I’ll have a shiny new toy. I’m totally nervous about changing from a regular PC to an Apple. I’m very comfortable with my PC; unlike so many other people, I’ve never really had any problems with my computers. I’ve had some minor irritations here and there, but I don’t dislike the operating system. So why did I go Mac? I don’t know. I think the mystery of the Mac Obsession intrigued me. So many people responded to my questions about Macs and told me about their undying love for the Apple brand, but I just wasn’t sure what the big deal was. So I pretty much spent a huge amount of money to figure out what big deal is. So far, from all the tutorials on the website were super helpful and easy to understand. So it makes me excited to get it and use it!
Well, I’m going to end this for now, but I promise to be back soon with hopefully something much more interesting to say.
