Round two: Me Vs non-writerhood

12 Oct

It’s been 9 months since I last posted a blog, and contrary to narrative imperative, I have not given birth in those 9 months. What I have been getting up to can be summarized easily:

1. Getting disgruntled with life in general
2. Changing jobs
3. Moving house from the tranquility of La Floresta to the insanity of El Raval
4. Enjoying said insanity immensely
5. Getting laid off and finding a new job at….. wait for it…..the Fish n Chip shop!
6. Attending a writers group….once
7. Making new friends
8. Resolving to start Spanish lessons again
9. Meeting Toots from Toots and the Maytals
10. Signing up for the blog-a-day challenge and NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) in which participants take up the challenge to write a 50,000 word novel in the month of November. Sign up, its gonna be fun!
11. Still enjoying previously mentioned insanity and new friends
12. Getting singed by the devils at the Merce festival
13. Realizing exactly what a Spanish friend meant when he once told me he missed an appointment because he was ‘lost to the city’ for three days
14. Feeling guilty about ignoring the blog-a-day challenge
15. Starting teaching again after the summer break
16. Taking action on my guilt…. one month later
