Yes, it’s National Novel-writing Month and I’m not participating. It’s my last term of school and I can’t afford to divide my attention that drastically. Too bad, because I really enjoyed the last two years. I even have an idea.
In spite of the workload, however, I haven’t been doing nothing. I did a rewrite of The Way, which though it won’t replace the ‘finished’ version, contains some good stuff I plan to incorporate. I’m also doing a minor edit of Dreamscapes, my first Nano project, so I can put it up on Smashwords. I’m really happy with the story, but the present tense I wrote in at the time now bugs me so I’m changing it.
I still plan to continue with the makeover on The Edge (yikes, I completely couldn’t recall the title and had to look it up) but that’s for next year. Too much dedicated time and attention required. Clearly my brain isn’t working well enough for that right now.
This term’s class (Integrated Accounting Issues, ugh) does require a fair amount of writing, so I’m applying my skill in that area. Commercial writing is a promising field, after all. Less fun than spaceships and alternate realities, but isn’t real life always?
I’ll be back.
