An Unexpected Turn of Events

Even the best laid out plans can't predict or prevent disasters from occurring.

If you've been following my NaNoWriMo progress on here, as I mentioned to do earlier this month, you've probably given up by now.

A series of unfortunate events (yes, that would be a Lemony Snicket reference), beginning with a broken hard drive and ending with an injured knee, set me back quite a ways.

Am I forever destined to fail at NaNoWriMo? Probably.

Can I write 35,000 words in the next three days? Maybe.

Do I have the motivation to try? Sometimes.

I may just push myself all the way over the edge of the mountain if I manage to make it that far.

But it will all be worth it!

    1. No, no hair pulling. I wouldn't want people thinking I was in here slaughtering Smurfs ~ you know, with all the blue fur flying around. The edge of that mountain is pretty close though!
