So It BeginsPosted: November 1, 2012
Well, November is here, and that means it’s another round of NaNoWriMo. I was debating whether to sign up for it this year, because rather than writing a whole novel like I did last time, this year I want to work on a bunch of short stories and treatments, plus I want to write them in Vietnamese instead of English (I’m looking to submit them to some literary magazines), which may make it difficult to count toward the 50,000 words. After all, it doesn’t matter if I sign up or not as long as I write about 2000 words a day. In the end, I decided that yes, I do need that deadline hanging over my head, otherwise I would probably quit halfway through. Plus I’m sick of feeling unproductive. Last year I complete the challenge while juggling a part-time job and an internship, so there’s no reason why I can’t do it this year.
P/S: I may have finally figured out how to casually wear a pencil skirt – an untucked graphic T-shirt and a pair of grubby sneakers are the answer.
Shirt: thrifted, Cardigan: Target, Bracelet: self-made
