I’m sure you were all wondering what happened to me over the last six weeks or so (not really), I haven’t posted in that long, but I’m still alive. I’ve just been intensely, insanely busy.
Was NaNo!! I ‘won’ for the fourth time straight (if you count Camp NaNo) and had a great time doing it. I missed almost a week due to work stuff but managed to catch up before the deadline, writing almost 9k on the last day to finish.
Like last November, my story went a little off the rails from where I imagined it would. I’m a devoted pantser but this story surprised me when it went from a light-hearted, silly concept into a fairly serious adventure story with a bit of a dark theme. It’s good though, probably one of the best stories I’ve written.
*Side note: I didn’t post this story to Wattpad as I did the last three NaNos as it was being written. Wattpad is a cool site but to really get the benefits you need to be really active on it. I’m not, so I closed my account. Rather than focusing on social media, writing sites, or blogs, I’m focusing on getting my stories finished and (hopefully) published soon.
After finishing up my 50K, the next week was a crazy one for work… Then the next week my sister came down for a visit. I have this week as somewhat normal but then next week I’m going on a trip for the holidays.
As you might imagine, the schedule hasn’t left much time for blogging and won’t until 2016.
When I get back I’ve got two drafts that I need to finish, then I’ll be looking for a good editor to get the ball rolling on publishing. I’ve also got the comic series that I was working on in October that has been a lot of fun and I want to turn into a regular on the blog.
Updates might not be coming fast for the next couple weeks but hopefully they’ll be worth the wait.
