Okay, so this is more than a week later. Quite a bit more. But to be fair, I was writing a novel, or at least attempting to. I did accomplish my word goal for Nanowrimo. Fifty thousand in thirty days! Whew! Who knew I had it in me. I learned a lot. I learned that I can write fifty thousand words in thirty days. I learned that fifty thousand of my words is the equivalent of two chapters, three or four random outlines, a prologue, several character sketches, an ending chapter, and several rants about how hard it is to write what I REALLY want to write. But at least I know that I have it in me. And what’s more, on my best days I was writing more than 5k so in reality, if someone locked me in a room for thirty days and said “write or you shall not see the next episode of Dr. Who!” I would probably be able to bang out quite a fine novel. Or at least a great and rather wordy death threat to my captors.
I will be back on track next week with weekly blog updates on all three blogs. The goal is Mondays here, Thursdays on the Foodie blog and one weekend day on “that other blog”. So thanks for your patience while I get my stuff done, it’s nice to be back.
