Getting It All Together

So, NANOWRIMO hasn't been too good to me this year. I know it's my fault--I can give a million excuses as to why I stopped after the fourth day, but the truth is just that I got bored with the character. I know there are plenty of ways to spice him up once I get into the middle of the story, but I cannot push myself to get back into it.

I won't blame my personal life for it. It's not my story's fault that I have decided to cut people from my life that are detrimental to my well-being. I only did this because I don't want to dictate how I live my life based on my friends and their lives. I've become empowered to control my destiny, but unfortunately that has left me temporarily friendless. At this point, most of my family is lucky that I still speak with them, but anyway...

I also won't blame my professional life where, surprisingly, I have been succeeding as of late. I get my work done in a good time with plenty of time to spare to make the extra dough I need to spoil myself once in awhile. Also, there's plenty of time left over to actually work on the nano story, but alas, I choose the DVR over writing many times. The DVR is finally empty, so there is no excuse today. I will get back into the story and try to limp over the finish line fashionably late.

I haven't been doing well at nano either. I was on track for the first three days, and then I got very sick for a week; couldn't bring myself to move from bed, let alone write. I know that now that I'm better I should get going and try to at least get 2,000 words everyday for the rest of the month... but I'm too discouraged and lazy.

Good luck! Hopefully we can both pull ourselves together for the second half of the month :)

Ha, I did this a couple years back. I came up with a decent rough draft, but it's been sitting in a drawer ever since...mostly out of laziness.

This place saved me $487 for the year or so! They are a web-based specialist plus they are kind, caring, as well as take fantastic care of their clients. Most importantly for me, they reply to e-mail and response telephone calls with humans.

Automobile insurance coverage is just not extraordinarily delightful. Conditional upon the point out yourr home is around, it could be more an important less massive or possibly larger piece of your financial allowance compared with other people spanning talk about strains. What is the the very least on your state? I've discovered this web site very beneficial to evaluate low cost auto insurance. I am very happy to be here.

Lot of information about how to get cheap auto insurance? Getting your first car insurance policy may not be a priority but it should be. Car insurance protects one of your first investments, your car. But car insurance can be complicated and often new car insurance shoppers fail to compare car insurance rates and in turn fail to reap the financial benefits of finding the best and affordable car insurance available to them. Information here is great. Love to come back again.

Once adjusters have that package thing by a lawyer with legal documents, photos and other papers and etc. For how long does it commonly state in the letter to respond? Do adjusters really respond by or on the date? Whenever they respond by telephone, email, letter or fax?
