I’ve been on the 6-day work week for awhile now, and I’m sad to say that my writing has taken a backseat to making a living (which isn’t panning out much, either, really). Every year I try to make time for writing during NaNoWriMo, and my 5-year-run, with 2 wins and 3 losses, has been a fixture in my creative life. You all have been with me on that journey for the last two years, and I’ve adored every minute of feedback and commiseration I’ve shared with all of you.
That sounded oddly like a farewell, didn’t it? Well, it’s not. NaNo is around the corner, and I’m world building like the universe is about to come to a crashing halt and my ideas are the only thing between us and utter extinction. I have two whiteboards that are being filled over and over, recorded into notebooks, and transcribed into Scrivener files. Characters who need fleshing out. Locations that need to be detailed.
It’s a lot to do in a short amount of time, but you know what? I always feel so… in my element when I’m plotting for NaNo. Even now, coming off of another lengthy dry spell, I’m doing much better plotting for NaNo than I have for anything else in the last few months.
I just wanted to send out a reminder that I’m still alive and NaNo is coming, so if you haven’t started plotting– GET ON THAT! Woo!
Damn it’s good to be home! <3 I’ll race you all to the start of 50k!
