Well, it's finally over - November, I mean. There were times I thought it would never end. There were also times, however, when it didn't even phase me, this daily posting. More days than not, I actually wasn't struggling for something to write about. I mean, it's not like I don't have things on my mind, or stories to tell, or people to mock. I didn't always feel excited to sit down and write them out, but I forced myself to do it, and I'm glad.
My goal, if you'll recall, for NaBloPoMo was to work on my writing - challenge myself with forced regular writing. Did I succeed? Yes, in the sense that I was able to form better writing habits by knowing I'd have to sit down every day and Use. Words. And while not every post was fantastic, I'm pretty proud of some of the things I wrote over the past 30 days.
Thanks to you all for being here and supporting me through the month. I'm making no guarantees about my posting from now on. Maybe I'll keep it up daily for a while. Maybe I'll just disappear completely without so much as a "See ya!" Maybe I'll find a happy medium somewhere between those two extremes. Who's to say? I'm unpredictable that way.
So here's to NaBloPoMo 2007 - I loved it while it lasted, but I'm loving that it's over.
Kitten Update: For those who've been wondering, Bertie's getting better. He's home again, which is good, but he still isn't eating as much as he should, and he has lots of medicines to take. Unfortunately, kittens don't "take" medicine unless you force it down their throats, and it's making me feel just awful. Multiple times a day, I have to bundle him up in a blanket (so he can't scratch me or escape) and poke a syringe all around his mouth while he cries and slowly chokes down the vile liquids. He gives me this betrayed look, with huge wet eyes - "Why are you doing this to me?!" I've been teary a few times, and I keep telling him it's only because I love him. But I feel so bad and I just want to snuggle and love him until he forgives me. Still, better to have a healthy kitten who feels betrayed than a sick kitten who's spoiled.
