This Years Version of NaNoWriMo

No, I shan't be attempting to write an entire novel in thirty days. One year I actually will but November is usually . . . not the quietest time of year for me. This year is espeicially busy. New jobs. Finals to study for. Holidays to prepare for. (Let us pause in a moment of silence to commend all those who find the time to fulfill obligations such as these AND write a quality novel in thirty days. You are truly superhuman.) Nonetheless I shall be challengeing myself in a somewhat less rigorous way throughout the month of November. I vow to:

1) Write at least an hour every day


2) Finish at least one short story

Small goals, yes, but I prefer to take on projects I know I can complete ---For short term goals that is. Long term goals are a different story entirely which is probably why I have to break them into tiny bite sized pieces.

My personal declaration made,

Hellooooo Again

Hello. Oh my! It has been awhile since I bailed right in the middle of A-Z last spring. Hello Blog! Nice to see you again.

And hello bloggers!!! How have you all been?

Things that have happened since then in my writing life:

1) I finished my (for now) final draft of White Hart. So excited, but scared to finally be querying!!

2) I Started a new novel project called Snow Roses that I, so far, absolutely love

3) I put my zines up on etsy. Here is the link if you are interested in reading some hand printed stories, poetry, and articles.

4) I went to ALA in Anaheim! So many books! So many authors! It was amazing.

I'll try to put something more thoughtful and content filled later this week but for now, how has the blogosphere been faring? I trust all of your writing projects have been progressing well and you have read many, fabulous books.
