It’s that time of year again. Harvesting corn, canning tomatoes, making applesauce (from the early apples) . . . In between training a new puppy, learning a new language, managing a blog . . . oh, and writing. I mean, I am a writer.
In all seriousness, Fate of a Prince’s first draft is finished, but it’s going to be a bit before I can afford to get it edited. So in the meantime, I have a Top-Secret project to work on 🤫 (which I hope you’ll hear about some day) and some outlining to do for the sequel to Fate.
And then there’s September, in which my job as a tutor will be revived, and October, in which I leave behind the teen years for good (*bites nails*), and then . . . November. (If you know, you know.) November is also and more accurately 😉 known as National Novel Writing month. And a number of years ago (feels like a lifetime ago. #gettingold) I took part in NaNoWriMo, took up the gauntlet to write 50k words in a month . . . and won! That was a huge deal.
But, as happens often in the writing life, there was never another November that coincided with me writing a new draft of something. Until . . . possibly . . . now. I don’t know for sure yet, but I’d love to take up this challenge again. So, hopefully, I’ll be able to announce a NaNo project this year. 🙂
So, while I go and get on with the Top-Secret project, tell me: are you doing NaNo this year? What else is going on in your life this summer (or winter . . . if you’re in the Southern Hemisphere)? Let’s chat!
