So, what's happened since I last posted on September 5th?
I've been reading. Slowly. I finished House of Leaves, The Submission, and the first book in The Bio of a Space Tyrant series. The theory texts have been temporarily set aside in favor of this..
My fellow NaNo buddy and I are hoping it will help spark our creativity and get us amped up for November's writing marathon.
Oh, yes, I will not only be participating in NaNoWriMo this year, I will be winning it. I have no excuses this time around. There will not be any mandatory reading assignments or term papers to write. My children will be sports-free. Barring some unforeseen emergency or family drama, this means the only distractions I will have to contend with will be of my own creation. Therefore, I will write the first 50 thousand words on book #2 in November.
If I start to lose pace, please feel free to remind me that my reading-for-fun should be delayed until the day's writing is done. Writing before reading in November! Also, as fall television programming is probably my favorite of all television seasons, I have a DVR, which means I can record my shows and watch them later.
Oh, and if you'd like to join the NaNoWriMo madness, be sure to look me up and add me as a buddy. My user ID in the community is krista225. I'm a member of the Flint Red Hot Writers on the forums.
