The summers are over way too quickly here in Scandinavia. I guess that’s why we savor it so much. That is if it happens to be a nice summer. This year was only decent and it was good that we opted for Italy instead of Norway for our summer holiday otherwise we would not have enjoyed consistent sunshine and temperatures above 15 degrees Celsius. The turn to fall is always a little harder to face as everyone knows that it means we have another six to seven months of cold, gray, rainy days ahead.
This November I’m doing something different. Instead of sulking, I’ve signed up for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and have agreed to produce a novel, or write 50,000 words of random babbling, within the next 30 days. I have done a fair amount of writing in my days, even started two novels and written many articles and countless press releases, but this will be a first for me. I’m up to around 5,000 words so far and it’s going well.
Wish me luck. I’m going to need it. And who knows, maybe it will inspire me to write more on this blog once it’s completed.
