Finding a blog topic this month has proved difficult. I was all set up to do NaNoWriMo again this year but while I waited out October a funny thing happened.
I couldn’t not write. It was so strange. After three days I started a new short story (to fill in the time, you understand) – that’s now stretched into a 20K novella. Oops.
I was still editing an older story but had planned to stop on the 15th. I was doing really well with that until I got a rejection. Rejections seem to kill my day. They shouldn’t – I know that but getting form rejections is frustrating.
So the next day, wondering what I could do better, I started reading the rejected story. With my head still in editing mode I got ruthless with the paper copy and a red pen.
A week before the 1st I put everything away and had a few peaceful days. That only gave me time to think up another novella, and its now stretched into a full erotica series centred around a family run brothel. *hands on head* Clearly, I shouldn’t be left alone with my imagination.
Editing what I’ve already written is my priority leading up to Christmas. I just couldn’t stay in the NaNo groove. If you’re not doing NaNo, what’s yours?
