Two Weeks

What’s up with the past two weeks as a hiatus from blogging? I have no idea. I’ve been busy, but I wouldn’t think so busy I would forget to blog for an extended period of time.

Oh well. There is always another chance to get back up and start over. I started reading No Plot? No Problem! by Chris Baty. It’s about writing a (short) 50,000 word novel in one month. NaNoWriMo has become quite an event in November, and I’d like to participate again this year, though the baby might get in the way. Then again, it’s exactly like the principle of the original challenge to have life posing obstacles that make it difficult to accomplish.

It’s only 1667 words a day. I know I can do 500 right now, though stringing sentences together has been difficult with the amount of sleep I’m getting from night to night. I bet I could work up to it by November. Any takers?

    Me!

    (Now, if only November was a summer month, like this month. I know I could easily do 2,000 words a day if NaNo was in August.)

    You can do NaNo in August. For some reason, the author thinks abysmal weather promotes writing because you stay indoors.

    I am game again this year. I am thinking a romance is in store for me (I know. Don’t ask.) I was actually going to hint on this in my own blog today but you beat me to it.

    Great minds think alike! Don’t ask about the romance? But now I’m so curious.

    Yay for NaNoWriMo!

    This year I’m going to start a group on wdc for those who want to do NaNo, but on already started projects. It means we won’t technically “win” but it’s good motivation to get some projects finished. I just don’t feel like starting a new one, or restarting the old ones because I want to get the first drafts done. Plus, I can work on more than one project for it. Might even go for 75k this year.

    Yay, another NaNo…and I STILL haven’t finished last year’s…

    I do intend to participate again this year, but I’m not sure what I’ll write. Perhaps I’ll pick up the dragons again…
