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?
