It's funny how much things can change in 2 years, isn't it?
Two years ago Evan and I were living in the shoebox apartment; this year we're 5 months into our own house that we bought and pay for like grown-ups.
Two years ago I had no clue what I'd be doing with myself; this year I'm almost done with my first semester of nursing school, have 4 finished novels under my belt and am merrily whiling away on my 5th.
Also, two years ago we didn't have these:
Writing used to have a high production value for me, as in it was a production for me to get started. Things had to be clean, my desk had to be just so, the right candles lit, the perfect music, etc. I still appreciate those things, but I can plunk out words whenever and wherever I need to now (though I still need music, if at all possible). Maybe I'm growing up, huh?
There's usually a NaNo thread showing off pictures of your writing space (which I love), but I didn't find it this year, so in the spirit of then-and-now, here we go:
|I'm not sure where the original of this photo is, but this is what it looked like during the first year I won NaNo., 2009.|
|Last year's space. I won't lie--I loved this office, and I still kinda miss it.|
So tell me: what's changed with you? Or if this is your first year participating, how's it going? Actually, how's it going period?
