I haven’t been on this blog since the beginning of this month because I wanted to focus all my writing effort on Nano. It’s paid off nicely. I’ve finished well ahead of schedule. 50,239 words as of today and more that three quarters of the story done. I can wrap up the end game at leisure now. Feeling good after last year’s debacle.
I must have a death wish. I’ve foolishly persuaded myself to try NaNoWriMo again next month, having not learned my lesson after crashing and burning last year. But, the allure of having a working story draft in 30 days is too irresistible to pass up.
So I’ll be taking a hiatus from the blog for a month while I drive myself crazy with frustration and worry through the month of November. Wish me luck, or better still, join yourself. Having done it three times now, I can say that it is a cathartic experience, no matter how the result turns out 🙂
