Where have I been??
Not here writing Betsy’s Blog that is for sure.
So, I’m breaking my silence finally after 2 years! It’s 2013. How’d that happen?
Ok so what have I been doing, you might ask, in the last 2 years? Or maybe you don’t care. That’s fine, too.
But just encase you are a bit interested…the biggest thing I am proud of is the fact that I participated in and completed a whole novel last November during National Novel Writing Month. Wrote just over 50K words.
I didn’t think I could do it and probably never would have attempted it but for my friend Von who just days before November 2012 told me she’d entered. Whatever Von does, I want to do? Maybe…but I hadn’t written much of anything up until then beyond extremely long emails full of fancy.
It was my attempt to restart my writing engines. And, it felt really good to meet the word goal by the deadline.
Needless to say NNWM does not require one to polish a novel in 30 days – only finish a very very rough first draft of at LEAST 50K words.
Truthfully, I didn’t think I had it in me to do. And, once again I was wrong.
Now, what I need for continuing work on this novel is something like, National Novel Revisions Month!
