I lost NaPlWriMo this year. Perhaps “lost” is too strong a term, although if you complete all 75 pages you get to say you won, so … not sure what the opposite term would be. Frankly, I’m not surprised. I launched into it at the last minute, I didn’t have anything really prepared. I did come up with some good ideas and I had a strong start that first week. And then life happened — various stresses and disappointments held me back and kept me from even being able to think about the script. I would think I should sit down and write, and really not want to.

But there are upsides. I have some good ideas to throw into the project later. So I might try next year, if I get everything more solid.

In the meantime, life goes on, in so many amazing ways. I mean, not only do I have projects coming up, various opportunities and good things, but NASA has released a statement that there might possibly be life on Titan (one of Saturn’s moons), and they’ve found a microbe that replaces phosphorous with arsenic. There are so many amazing things in the universe, and I am lucky to be able to learn about them.
