Part of the reason my blog has been neglected is I've been busier than usual. I've got loads to write about so watch this space for some retrospective blogging in a RetroNaBloPoMo.
As for the other NaNoBlahBlah things going on this month, there's NaKniSweMo. National Knit a Sweater Month. Well I knitted a sweater in ten days in October and I'm not doing that again, unless I'm knitting for myself. As Natalie pointed out, November is the month for preparing for Christmas. I can't see my family being to pleased on Christmas day when I open up a parcel for me, made by me while everyone else has nothing.
It's also NaNoWriMo - National Novel Writing Month, in which people attempt to write a 50,000 word novel in a month. Seeing as I struggle to write on here frequently I think I'll give that one a miss.
