I would have loved to have been able to do NaNoWriMo.  Really, I would.  Unfortunately, I could not come up with a single idea for something to write about, and I know there are some days where I just would not have been able to write enough.  So, I decided to participate in the next best thing – NaBloPoMo!  Basically, you have to write a blog post every day throughout the month of November.  Technically, I am already kinda cheating: it is the 2nd of November here already, and this is my first post that I am counting.  However, for most participants it starts today, so… here it is.

I am setting myself a couple of rules for the month to make things more interesting, and also to ensure that I don’t really ‘cheat’.

1.  All posts must be of a decent length.  None of this ‘Hi!  Here’s a really fast post so I have one today’ nonsense!

2.  2/3rds of my posts minimum must be about WoW.  I have been slacking incredibly in this regard lately.  The worst of it is, I told myself that most all real life stuff had to go in the personal diary style blog (the one that no one ever sees).  Of course… I completely failed at that.  So – more WoW here, less me!

3.  I am going to try and use a few different formats, just to change things up a bit.  Still undecided on whether video posts count as actual posts, so I may not use those.

If I break any of the above rules (especially rule number two!) feel free to remind me… yell and scream if you have to!

So, in the spirit of at least ensuring I talk about WoW a little:

Hallow’s.  End.  REALLY.  Bugs.  Me.  I have been trick or treating like a crazy person, running HH every day, and I still don’t have the Sinister Squashling.  I haven’t even seen one drop.  Meanwhile, other people have gotten three or four of them in treat bags.  So unfair!  As I type I am trick or treating, and heading out to Goldshire to try for one there.  I guess I have said it before, and I will say it again:  I am one of the unluckiest people in the whole wide world.

I got most of the achievements done nice and early for the title this year, which meant I had plenty of time to focus on the lucky (or unlucky) drops.  I get a Hallowed Helm fair early on as well, and thought I might have actually had it in the bag (tehe!) this year.  Nope!  A day left and I am starting to panic a little.  Honestly, I am not sure why I want the title so much, apart from ‘Saresa the Hallowed’ sounding pretty awesome.

How have you gone with your achievements?  Do you even want the title?

  1. I completely understand how you feel. I had gotten all the trick or treating done right off the bat and eventually got everything else… I just needed the squashling and the helm. And I have got neither. No matter which runs I do, no matter if I trick or treat every hour on the hour (and I’m not even joking, I’m home all day so I made a point) and I have not gotten either. I too know people that have gotten it multiple times over, who have them on their banks, for crying out loud… and I have nothing.

    My bf managed to get his last night and therefore secured the title, but I have no hope left and I am resigned to having to wait all the way until next year… my luck is about as good as yours.
