Happy (Almost) Most Wonderful Time of the Year, friends!!
The veil is thinning, spirits are getting more chatty, and – as is tradition – I’m trying to talk myself out of doing NaNoWriMo next month while kinda talking myself into it. I fail at this every year, and I’m starting to accept my participation as an inevitability.
So, that’ll be one goal this month! 😀
What else is happening?
With my more-or-less done decision of doing NaNo, I want to put the heat on these rewrites. There’s much to do, and I know I’ll be happier going into NaNo with them done. This will be my priority this October. Fortunately, my NaNo prep should be pretty light, because…
I’ll be writing The Silence of Magic *high five*
(me: ‘I’m considering maybe doing NaNo this year if there’s time.’
Also me: *talks about it like it’s decided*)
I’m very aware that I only just burned out earlier this year and that NaNoWriMo usually puts a lot of pressure on me when I’m also working somewhere else, so I’ll be taking it slowly and won’t stress over the end goal. Having said that, I also know that I’ll struggle to not work on it should I make it within 10k of winning *shrugs*
And I believe that will do! I’ll need October to get used to my new routine of being back at work, so the goals above will be plenty.
What are you up to this month? Are you preparing for NaNo too?
