Reflections- November


Print
November started with signing up for writing challenges. I signed up NaNoWriMo, which was the National Novel Writing Month, and NoMo. I failed NaNoWriMo miserably, but I don’t regret that. I tried writing initially, but with guests, festivals, work schedule, it took a toll and I couldn’t even go half way through it, which isn’t that bad I suppose. NoMo, I tried writing every single day of the month, I missed a few days in between, but that’s totally alright I guess.

It was a month full of festivity and joy. Spending time with family, visiting my parents, and then travelling for a wedding. It was a pandemonium state, but full of fun! I met my sister as well.
I came to know about a secret admirer of my blog.tim Doesn’t that give a beautiful feeling inside which is totally inexplicable? I never thought someone could secretly like my blog!

I received a wonderful gift from my Secret Santa, and it was bliss to welcome something from someone you don’t even know. I don’t know my Santa yet, and I am really looking forward to get to know about him/her.

It was a month of a few firsts too. For example-
  • My story made it to the final publishing list in one of the anthologies.
  • So were the poems. The books should get printed by January
  • First TangyTuesday pick by Blogadda.
I know it’s very small, but when it’s the first time, it really means a lot (it means at all the other times as well :P)

Saw Tamasha, and I liked it. Yes. It wasn’t everyone’s cup tea, but very nicely done movie. If you ever take life lessons from movie (when you feel it is right), you can surely get some light there.
That pretty much sums up my November. What did you do last month? Any thoughts you mind sharing?

Happy Reading

Cheers

  1. I signed up for NaNoWriMo too but couldn't start it even :/

    I watched Tamasha and liked it too. November was busy and boring for me in many ways. I'm glad its over.

    Congrats on the getting published and Tangy Tuesday pick. After having known you since you started blogging, I feel so proud of you :)

    Lots of love!

  7. That sounded like a lot of fun and activity. I guess mysteries are your favourite with the excitement around a secret admirer and Secret Santa. :)

  9. Looks like you had a full action-packed month! :D
    I was just taking things easy a bit last month, taking care of some health issues. That Secret Santa bit was fun though. Have you blogged about it already? We'll start guessing from Monday, it seems!

  11. Here, it's been only rains throughout Nov. But had a good time without power, and hence without gadgets, for two full days. That helps one to recharge :)
