No, I'm not getting a jump start on Christmas. I'm talking about NaNoWriMo!
I don't know what it is, but everything about NaNo feels magical to me right now. As you will notice if you happen to scroll down, I haven't been blogging much . . . at all . . . lately. That's about how much I've been writing, too.
But NaNo just has a way of taking me by the horns and letting me know in no uncertain terms that mediocrity isn't going to cut it right now.
So, I've started fleshing out a story idea, and I have a vague notion of a few characters and a (VERY) basic roughed-out plot. And on Thursday, I'm leaving for a little retreat with several writing friends. I'll be gone for about 2 1/2 days, and hopefully I'll be able to get lots of writing done.
Wish me luck! And best of luck to everyone out there who's going to attempt NaNo, too. I'll keep you updated as the month goes along.
