I'm back! I couldn't get in to JaNo because I couldn't remember how. I have left bread crumbs this time to find my way back in and out.
I've been snowed under with a writing project that has had a few unexpected twists and turns, including writer's block, and as soon as I get that finished (which really HAS to be today) I am back to my real work, which is writing novels.
Notice the use of plural. Novels. Not novel. Because I am going to write more than one. Right after I finish this one.
I'm disappointed with my "progress" this year so far. I've got lots of excuses but not enough gold stars on any calendar. Though I can't recapture that time, I can learn from this experience (can't I?) and accept no excuses. Write first. Make excuses for why I don't get the OTHER stuff done, not for my writing.
Looking for that white hot streak myself. Actually, any kind of streak will do provided it is not a losing streak.
Will try to post and comment more often. We are all moving forward, even if at different speeds.
Good luck! Write much. The more there is, the better it will be even if you throw a third out.
The month is not half over. In fact, it's more than half full.
