I’ve taken part in the November ritual of fast writing in the past, crafting four novel drafts. As much as I love the rush of building a story and its narrative in the span of a month, this year, I won’t be able to take part.
This isn’t me dodging my writing or feeling like I don’t have time. There are other things I need to pursue.
Here’s a convenient list!
- Editing. I need to get two of those novels I mentioned up to speed so I can tell editors and agents about them.
- Query letters. I need to get more of these out there. Won’t get published without making those contacts.
- Writing. Can’t give up on making new strings of words. After all, that’s the dream.
Maybe next year for me. How about all of you? Anyone planning on doing NaNo this year?
