So, somehow, it’s freaking November already! I have absolutely no idea where this year has gone, it seems to have whizzed by in a blink.
Now, as I prepare myself to mutter my apologies, which are becoming painstakingly familiar, I think we can all just admit I can be crowned Shittest Blogger of 2016 and be done with it. I accept my fate, as no matter how good my intentions have been, for the life of me I have struggled to actually get shit done.
So what has me crawling back out of my cave today, you may ask? Well, it’s November first, which, as many of my fellow bloggers and writers know, means one very important thing to us: it’s Nanowrimo time.
Despite a severe lack of planning (AKA, I haven’t even entirely settled on a story yet), I am determined to use this to pull me out of my reading/writing slump this year! 30 days, 50,000 words, 1 novel.
Am I delusional to be diving in with so little preparation? Quite possibly. Then again, last year I think I decided on a story on about November 6th, and still managed to finish on November 30th (at around 11.57pm, but that’s besides the point!), so I know it can be done.
Admittedly, my efforts of beginning thus far this evening have mainly consisted of testing about 7 variations of how to hand letter the ‘Nanowrimo’ header for my Bullet Journal (my new obsession, and what I’m hoping will assist me in pulling my finger out my arse and keeping my chaotic life rather more organised!), but I will get there despite my procrastination! (The more observant may note this post in itself to be a procrastination, but shhhh!)
So anyway, that’s me all revved up and ready to get back on the horse this November! Best of luck to everyone else taking part too! Xxx
And in other news…
As it’s been a horrendously long period of time since I last blogged, here’s a little catch up one what’s new in the world of Paris…
I’m being a princess!
Well, obviously I’m a princess everyday, but sometimes it’s nice to have it recognised on a more public scale 😉 so it’s pretty cool that I landed the role of principal girl, AKA Princess Jill in this year’s pantomime, Jack and the Beanstalk, on at the Jersey Opera House. We’ve only started rehearsing recently, but it’s a great laugh and a really fab cast.
A little slice of heaven
At the end of September, Ben whisked me away on our first holiday together, to the incredible island of Mauritius. I can’t put into words how beautiful it was, as it wouldn’t do it justice (or maybe I’m just a shit writer?!) but it was heaven, and the whole trip was just pure bliss.
Speaking of Ben, we’ve managed to swing it with work so that he splits his time between Jersey and Guernsey, meaning as of two weeks ago, he now lives with me! At least, he does for 5 nights a week, but that’s a hell of a lot better than it was, so I’ll take it. And yeah, I’m still pretty disgustingly smitten. This weekend I even had us in Mickey & Minnie Mouse costumes for a Halloween party at my dad’s, and it was pretty much the cutest thing ever. (He’s going to kill me for putting this up but I love it!)
Anyway, better dash, I’ve got a book to write this month!
