Last year I attempted to write a novel in 30 days. Some of you may be aware of NaNoWriMo. It’s when thousands of crazy writers all over the world, write 50000 words in the month of November. I did it. And I was happy with the story I wrote.
I have been very absent from bloggyland over the past few weeks. I miss reading blogs ever-so-much. But my dream is to have books published. To achieve that, I need to let go of some enjoyable yet time consuming things.
I have been re-writing and editing my NaNo novel. My hope is to have it in the final proofing stages before November, because I want to do NaNoWriMo again this year.
I will return bloggyland, and I know many of my favourite bloggers will still be here when I pop in and out. I miss you all so much.
But I write, because I must write.
Cradle Fables recently put this on facebook… "You must want to enough. Enough to take all the rejections, enough to pay the price of disappointment and discouragement while you are learning. Like any other artist you must learn your craft - then you can add all the genius you like." - Phyllis A. Whitney, former Mystery Writers of America Grand Master
