Nanowrimo has come and gone.
I literally did … well, the same thing I always do. I wrote a few words, worked, parented children, and I have gone on just as I have always done. It’s a regret of mine, and, I admit, it used to cause me some disquiet, some minor discomfort.
There was the idea in the back of my mind that Nano was what the “real” writers do, but I’m no longer carrying that particular cross. I have come to understand that Nano is great for the writers who can do it. I’m not one of them, and that doesn’t make me less of a writer or them more of one. It makes us different writers.
My process requires pauses. It requires space, and my life doesn’t lend itself to either of those things. It’s simply a matter of doing what I have to do. That said, I have some beta reads that will be ready for me early, and that makes me ecstatic, so GO, NANO!
What’s in the works?
I’m working on a new series, but I don’t want to put it out there just yet. I’m going to spend some time on this one. Get to know it as I go. That’s my update. No pressure for me. Hopefully, a new series for you.
