NaNoWriMo approaches (like a freight train), and I am going to participate for the first time. There is a comic sci-fi novel that has been tickling my brain for years. The tentative title is “Luck”, and I hope that doesn’t jinx it. Well, the time to commit it to paper is here(ish – actually in two more days).
All of this is in service of becoming a more productive writer.
It’s strange. When I was teaching, writing was an escape. I looked forward to the time I could steal from other things to finish my first novel. Now that I’m retired and have a lot of free time writing seems more like a chore. The human brain (or at least my brain) is very odd.
I will post updates in November. Good luck to all writers participating in this creative marathon. 50,000 words or bust!
