I come to all of you readers from the past. I wrote this blog post on Friday, but I didn't want to interrupt the blog tour mania.
This month has brought quite an accomplishment - mostly me going insane. Just a little insane. Regardless, I will spend all Saturday finishing my Camp NaNo novel. As of Friday, I had 10k to go. And possibly, come Sunday, I might be done with a novella.
The Unanswerable started out as a blog short story, but someone asked me "Where's the rest of it?" There was no rest of it, but I thought about this. I thought about the characters, mulled over their circumstances. And soon? I had about ten excerpts from this story posted on my blog.
And I set out to eventually finish it.
I'm glad that July is going to be easier. I'm planning on dedicating the month to editing Ruhe and Rioss and doing a ton of beta reading for other people. I'm excited to finally be done with another project - but this Camp NaNo really took it out of me. Due to my (in)sanity, I am also attempting Camp in August and NaNo in November.
Because the characters (voices) in my head won't leave me alone! That's why!
Oh, that and if I finish my novella and another novel by October, I will have written four novels and one novella in a year.
And after never having written one? And picking up projects only to put them down again for years? I say it's the greatest accomplishment of my writing life.
