Alas, no #fridayflash this week, but that’s ok. I’ve been prepping myself for the start of my new writing life, starting Monday. I’m very excited and am grateful for your help. And for those that have joined the gentle butt kicking fest, (Karen, I’m looking at you) this’ll be great. Let’s do this!
Ok, time to hop off my overly optimistic happy box there before I make myself sick or burp a rainbow or something. No, but really, looking forward to getting stuff done. That will be a great thing.
So, I’ve seen other people asking about NaNoWriMo, the crazy psycho month long novel writing fest in November. I did it once a few years ago. I didn’t get to the 50,000 words, but I made good progress on what I was working on. It wasn’t even something I think I’d ever want published, but it was a nice feeling to just get up and write and make progress on a project. Have you ever done the NaNoWriMo? Are you going to this year?
I am considering it, because I have something in mind, and it would be nice to get the first draft done. But considering it took me two years to do the first draft of “Shaping Fate” I just don’t know if I operate on that fast track. I still might give it a go though, just for the sake of the first draft. I’m also a different writer than I was during the first draft of “Shaping Fate” so it might be a good experience. We’ll see.
Anyway, I hope you have a great weekend and I’ll leave you with this link from Penguin Books, UK. Seems that they are accepting unsolicited submissions until the end of October. Anybody hear about this or going to submit? Click here for the link.
