Someone stop the ride… I want to get off…
I intended on posting my wrap-up for NaNo over a week ago, but it seems like life has been a never ending spin-cycle. The entirety of November was kinda like that and it hasn’t really stopped yet. Had a lot of issues: personal health, financial, vehicular, and weather-related. Had some good times, too, with a visit from my mom, baking Christmas cookies, and seeing my sister perform in a local production of Annie, but overall, it’s been a whirlwind.
The Tinctists is not done, though I’m planning on finishing it and my posts for Redwall Survivor before the turn of the year… if everything else slows down enough that I can focus. My Muse tried to hop a plane to Bermuda again, but I caught her and dragged her back before she got too far.
NaNoWriMo 2017 was one of the most challenging for me and just solidified in my mind two things:
- Writing two stories is hard — almost impossible for me right now.
- Pantsing is not an efficient, effective, or fun way for me to write.
I’ve continued my winning streak with NaNo, and I did write every day (with my record low for the month being 16 words), but I’m more glad it’s over than I normally am.
