In the interest of full disclosure, I didn’t win NaNo, but what I learned changed my writing life.
Finally, a good week!
With the kids going back to school, after school activities starting up, unexpected medical emergencies, and getting ready for an out-of-state wedding, I’m a disorganized mess and didn’t prepare a post.
I feel so naked.
Instead, here are links to some pretty cool stuff that I hope you’ll find interesting.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve had this crazy notion knocking around in my head that I needed large blocks of time in order to write. I waited around for the perfect set of circumstances to line up. Now, I’m a slow writer anyway. Add this and, well, it’s no surprise it took me so long to write my first draft or that I’ve been working on my revision for a year and only half way done.
Holy crap, has it been a year already?!
Yes, I’ve seen contrary advice before. I’ve also managed spurts in which I worked like mad at every opportunity. But it didn’t last and didn’t really change my thinking. Until I read examples in the blogs of two writers, husband and wife, Kristine Kathryn Rusch and Dean Wesley Smith.
It’s a blog hop on the first Wednesday of each month where writer-types can share their insecurities and/or encourage others.
I soooo need this.
This morning, I got hit by a series of ideas from my Muse and all I can say is:
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
The intensity actually made me dizzy for a while. Too bad I had to break the moment and take my kid to Driver’s Ed.
No, I was NOT driving impaired.
