I've been so busy celebrating that I hadn't had a chance to follow up on my last blog. Yeah! Now I don't know what to do with my nights. The last month has been some pretty intense game-watchin'. Well, actually, my time is already filled up as it is November. I participated in NANOWRIMO in 2004 (I think) & I've chosen to participate in the madness again this year.
There have been a couple of scathing articles on writing/NANOWRIMO in the last few days (one on Huffington & one in the Atlantic about writing books...I'm too tired to include the links, please forgive) but I don't care. I know why I'm doing it. It's a challenge to get as much out as I can in the shortest possible time. For me, the beauty is the planning process when your brain is percolating and it's seems like there are several dawns in the day. I love that feeling. The actual writing of it is just another transition.
Last time I participated I had been laid off so it was (I won't say easy back then) perfectly doable to write 1667 words a day. I just started a new job two weeks ago. Wow! What a challenge, but so far, I've risen to the task. Anyway, all is well on this side of the bridge. Happy to be moving from one intensity to another.
