It has been a good week. I found that groove, focused and pounded out the other two outlines for my trilogy.
Since I found the groove I was loath to pull myself out of it for any other writing. Like Blogging and even Twitter. So I’ve been rethinking how much time and effort I want to put into these over the coming months as I has through the writing. No major decision yet.
The really sad side:
I was excited about participating in NaNoWriMo. I had read of it in blogs the past two years. I wanted to participate this mostly for the motivation. Finals week at college, the bid deadline, the crunch. Last minute panic is a beautiful, powerful thing.
Then I read the rules. Unfortunately my writing process involves not stymieing any creative spurts so I’ve a few scenes already written and they are keepers. Which is against the rules. My outline and character sketches are fine but not that. I’m ok
unbearably angry though. I plan on participating in spirit this November. Hopefully next year I can join in all the way. Good luck to everyone who is officially participating!!
