Here I go a NaNo’ing . . .

Writing a book in a month . . . I highly recommend it! Especially when the month starts out with a hurricane and no internet access for days on end now. There’s nothing like a good challenge to help you know what kind of stuff you’re made of.

I’m pleased so far. The writing is going well, the plot is thickening in all the right places, and I’m learning just how fast I really can write. Finishing my first book helped me come to grips with the idea that I can no longer think of myself as a quitter, but now have to consider myself a winner (so difficult for the phlegmatic/melancholy fractions of my personality.) Writing this well and fast at the same time is changing my perception of my capabilities. Now I know, in just one short week so far, that I can indeed sit my behind in the chair and come up with something that’s not half bad. For the half that is bad, there’s EditMo in January, when I get to throw out the bad and keep the good. What a great way to start a year!
