There is power in accountability: after my blogging confession last week that I haven't made any progress on my goal to write 50 works before next year, I got busy and did numbers 1 and 2! Neither is available for sharing, unfortunately, but let me tell you -- they were heartfelt!
'Read any good books lately? I decided last month to re-read Stephen King's The Shining, in anticipation of the sequel being released. When I finished that I began Dr. Sleep. It's classic Stephen King. And I have learned that I've outgrown Stephen King's writing. Still -- when I lie in bed and open Dr. Sleep, it brings back happy memories of teen age summer days and books that are predictable in a good way, so I am satisfied.
I've been doing a lot of paper art lately but I can't really share because they are swaps and I don't want to spoil the surprise. Here's just a sneak peek of a swap I sent off last week to England.
Working on these sure has put me in the mood for Christmas creating!
November is National Novel Writing Month, and all over the world published and unpublished-writers are typing away. The goal is to write a 50,000 word novel during the month, and it's not easy to do but it is an AWESOME experience. I've done it a few times in the past bu I'm not doing it this year, are you?
I happened to be wearing a NaNoWriMo T-shirt to work today and got to talking about it with a coworker. I remembered that one year our local Colorado Springs group was featured on a radio show called The Next Big Thing, which airs on NPR. I Googled it this morning and was surprised to discover the link to the interview is here but it you can't listen to it online...which makes no sense! (But I do have CDs; there were actually two interviews.) Then I realized it feels like yesterday but was actually 10 YEARS AGO this month.
It also made me remember the goal I set a couple of months ago to write 50 works this year.
