Its been a while hasn’t it :)
But i just couldn’t cope with moving house, Nano and blogging, all at the same time.
As for Nano…ha ha ha, what a mare that was! I decided to write the novel by hand, and after 2 weeks only had 11,000 handwritten words….but then, I was seeing everyone crossing the finish line and it made me determined to finish. There was no way I wanted to ruin my record of finishing every year…house move or no house move ;) So I put the novel away and started writing short stories on the laptop. I did 30,000 words in the final week, crawling over the finish line at lunchtime on the 30th *rolls eyes*
So now I’m back :) All unpacked at the new house and enjoying my study. But now what? I’m not sure. I think I need time to think, time to regroup, re access and reevaluate what I want to do, with my writing and other stuff. I want to finish the novel (A Little Whistle) and I’d still like to do that by hand, then type it up as the first part of the editing process. I think I will take this month off though, and start again in January, using the 100K in 100Days challenge to keep me motivated.
I will try to get back into a routine with the blog, gawd, I have missed it and you guys :)
So tell me…what have you been up to? How are you all?
