As a follow up to my blog of Oct. 12 when I was on the fence whether to take the NaNoWriMo challenge this year or not, I came up with my decision at the last minute, last night at midnight.
With three newsletters to write, I didn’t think I could manage to finish them before Oct. 31. With my imposed deadline, I worked diligently and focused to make it happen.
I actually work better on a tight schedule. All the time.
I finished the Carolina Rosarian, a 16-page quarterly newsletter for the Carolina District of the American Rose Society.
I followed that with The Charleston Rose, an 8-page monthly newsletter of the Charleston Lowcountry Rose Society which includes a revision to the Charleston Lowcountry Rose Society Constitution and ByLaws.
Yesterday, I finished Whitney Lake Gazette, a 12-page quarterly newsletter full of useful information for residents of Whitney Lake in Johns Island. I sent it out at midnight last night to all Whitney Lake residents.
I am the editor of all three newsletters, President of the Charleston Lowcountry Rose Society and Board Member of Whitney Lake Homeowners Association.
There were other things I had to do and I managed to squeeze them with my tight schedule.
I’m back on my computer, typing away towards my 5th NaNoWriMo Challenge which journey I began in 2013.
Today, I did 2090 words so I’m on my way.
Until Next time. Stop and Smell the Roses.
