Friday Flash 55 — No NaNoWriMo

Why I Won't Be Joining NaNoWriMo* This Year
  • I forgot until reading about it after November 1st.
  • Cannot concentrate with Sandy’s aftermath and upcoming election.
  • Having a novel in my head would be a novel concept but I don't so it’s moot.
  • NaWoWriNoMo** suits my current schedule.
  • My cat is sick.
  • I am in love.

Written for Friday Flash 55 - My post in exactly 55 words - for the G-Man. 
* National Novel Writing Month
** National Won't Write Novel Month 

Please assure me that I am not the only one who is reminded of this!



Don't Feed The Pixies said...

Aaah Robin Williams, Mork And Mindy. Top stuff.

Did you know Mork originally appeared in Happy Days and was developed from there into a seperate sit-com (An episode called "My Favourite Martian" - effectively i think Richie has a dream about meeting Mork)

This will be my third time entering NaNoWriMo and i wouldn't miss it - although i do have to agree with your comments about Sandy, especially as the story i had in mind is set in New York. That really did make me stop and think whether i wanted to carry on or not

I decided in the end that there would always be stories set in New York, but that it would be inappropriate for me to write about the storm, having not experienced it - so have set my story some months prior

Nanu-nanu to you too :)

Pixies~ Nanu that you have told me that you wouldn't miss it I feel irritated with myself for not trying. I suppose that since I'm only 1-1/2 days behind I could sign in and then just write goofy stuff/whatever comes..... but, nah!(nu) I don't think so, probably not this year.

Lydia said...

Pixies~ If you might remember to remind me of NaNoWriMo next year, around mid-October that would be so great. :)

Fireblossom said...

I refuse to participate in anything that sounds like baby babble, though I love your version! Besides, I don't get the point of writing for volume.

You're in love? Details, please? ;-)

Brian Miller said...

haha...i think love is as good a reason as any...cause you wont be after 30 days sequestered in a closet writing...or maybe they wont be there when you come out...smiles.

G-Man said...

Lydia in Love....
Now that sounds like Lifetime Channel movie. (And they almost always have a Happy Ending)
And yes, NaNoWriMo reminds me of that stupid catch phrase.
Arent you glad MY prompt is so easy?
Loved your 55 My Friend.
Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

Olivia said...

Love is a good enough reason :)
I am doing NanoWrimo this year...

weekend hugs xoxo

Lydia said...

Fireblossom~ What is it that they say is in the details?..... okay, okay, my husband's birthday is this weekend and my mind is elsewhere.

Brian~ Astute! Very close to what I was wondering myself!

G-Man~ I love your prompt, you know that! And I am in love with life, you know that too. :)

Samy~ Thank you. I am. And my kitty is very brave, plus she has I am hopeful.

Olivia~ I only had 55 words, remember. I could think of many more reasons to not do NaNoWriMo (maybe next year?) Good luck with your novel writing. You should visit Pixies to encourage him, and get encouragement. :)

Doesn't work for my schedule, either, Lydia. November is StOfHibMo. ("Start of Hibernation" Month.)
I have booked (so to speak) my space; we've had a delightful snowfall; I'm feeling very sleepy.

See you in th . . . zzzzZZZZ.

Lydia said...

Rob-bear~ StOfHibMo! That is great. So is sleep. Sweet dreams, Bear.

Loved Mork! side splitting sometimes!

I used to think writing a novel would be awesome, but I've since learned that fiction is not my forte. Alas! I will have to find some other kind of book to write :)

Lydia said...

izzy~ I loved him too. :)

Amber Lee~ You do so very well with personal writing. A memoir is in your future!

Shakira Choong said...

Lydia said...

Margaret~ I loved your comment. It made me smile. ")
