NaNoWriMo 2015:the one that…didn’t go that well, actually

Sooo, remember that time (a couple of weeks ago) where I was all excited about doing NaNoWriMo this year? About doing something completely different! An essay on His Dark Materials! Yay for branching out!

Yeah, about that…

I stopped somewhere at the 5000 words mark. It was a struggle to get there at all. Not that I wasn’t enjoying myself! I was, in fact, I loved the parts that I did write.

But for the past couple of months, I’ve been struggling with both physical and mental health. I’ve been tired a lot (exhausted is a better word, and that every single day), my doctor’s put me on extra vitamins, my depression’s returned, there’s stress at work. All in all, not a great environment.

And so, my productivity went downwards fast. I just kind of stopped doing, well. Anything. I haven’t been doing much more than work, sport, Tumblr and Netflix.

For the past week or so, I’ve very slowly been picking up some more things again here and there – like blogging! – now my mood is slightly (and I really do mean slightly) improving again. But it’s still a tricky situation, and I’m definitely still not in the best place ever.

So, who knows. I might still turn the project into a series of blogposts (and maybe combine it with insights into Harry Potter, too) if anyone’s interested. I just can’t make any promises about it.

Let me know if you’re interested in learning more about the science/religion/women or hearing about my own ideas and headcanons from the His Dark Materials series, and who knows what might happen!
