So, remember last year when it was NaBloWriMo in November? (A cursory look seems to indicate it was October this year.. oops). Well, I so enjoyed a reason to write everyday that month that I fully intended to do it again this year.
And then I was in Hawaii with my husband's family on November 1st and y'know what? It completely slipped my mind :) Which is understandable, I think (wait till you see the pictures--I think you'll forgive me, too).
But hey Byzantines: guess what--Philipovka is just around the corner! When did this happen?! I was thinking about Kris Kringle presents last evening and I realized: HOLY MOLEY NOVEMBER 15 IS ON MONDAY! You might think all-caps is unnecessary, but I was more than a bit taken aback.
And I find myself wanting to slow the year down a bit, to savor its ending just a little more this year..
Back to blog writing months.. I've worked out a compromise. I'll blog every day during Advent. That is, during Byzantine Advent, which is Philipovka, starting November 15. Blogging every day will, at least, help me realize the passing of days, which may not slow time down, realistically, but it will help me appreciate the days more.
And that's important, too.
