Short update

The upside:

It has been a good week.  I found that groove, focused and pounded out the other two outlines for my trilogy.

The downside:

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!!
