I am again this year doing the National Novel Writing Month challenge. I completed it the first two years I tried. This is the third time. Should be a charm, right?
NOT!! I have two anthologies I would like to send stories to, a novel that is at the editors, the sequel to that (I did that for last year’s NaNo), and at least two more novellas/novels to finish. So in my infinite wisdom, I signed up for NaNoWriMo! Well it is day 14 with 17 more to go. I’m coming in at just over 24k, at about the halfway mark for this novel. I don’t just write my 2k or so per day. I have to put some words in the handful of works in progress that are sitting on the back burners.
I am still doing the job hunting thing, and have plenty of time to write. Four hours of work a week is nothing at all so there is no excuse for me not to put words on the page. I was hoping to not have this kind of time on my hands but since I have it, I will make use of it.
Well, I need to go stretch, put a log on the fire, and grab a drink before I finish off the last few words for the day on my Nano. Then it will be off to work on one of the other projects for a bit before supper.
If any of you are participating in the insanity, congratulations and good luck. If you are not, then you are a wiser person than I. Good luck to you in all of your endeavors!
until next time!
