My Goals For November 2017

I’m now a week into November, which seems a little late to be setting some goals for the month, but ah well. I’m not really counting last week as existing in my Boss Babe plan. I was on holiday. Boy did I need my holiday!


But alas! Back to normality it is.

It took me a while, but I’m really becoming quite the goal-setting, goal-getting queen. I found a wee list of goals I’d set myself for 2017 recently, and you know what? I’ve achieved them all. Well, all but one, but I’m on course to achieve that before the year’s out (she prays hopefully).

I’ve an essay to write, I’ve music to learn, there’s a diary of concerts, and I’ve barely put pen to paper so far, but what’s a list of goals without a ridiculously un-achievable one, eh? Even I admit 50,000 is quite out of reach, so I’ve set myself a goal of 25,000 – 30,000 instead. I’ll take that for the moment.

I’ve been at this blogging malarchy for a while now, but only recently have I actually started taking it seriously. The fact that I’ve kept it ticking over for so long is impressive for a non-starter like me, so it’d be nice if I can keep working at it long enough to actually get something back from it this month.

NaNoWriMo 2017: Here We Go

Public Service Announcement: I, Lauren, have decided to take on the arduous (and quite frankly insane) challenge of NaNoWriMo 2017!

NaNoWriMo 2017 Preptober

NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month, takes place in the month of November every year. Its many, many participants all challenge themselves to write a 50,000-word novel in thirty days.

Crazy, right?

Now I am under no illusions as to how impossibly difficult this challenge will be, or that I am highly unlikely to make the 50,000-word target. Firstly, I am a full-time university student with a many hours a week job on top. Second, I am a music student, meaning that much of my ‘free time’ is spent in a practice room. Third, I also have a 2,500-word history essay due at the beginning of December.


But despite my ridiculously hectic schedule I am determined to give NaNoWriMo a whack, because a)I may be slightly insane and b) I have wanted to take part in NaNoWriMo since the day I discovered it, so why not now?

So buckle up, settle down, and wish me luck, because life is about to get coo-coo-ca-choo crazy!

(But in a very good way.)
