Best wishes to everyone participating in NaNoWriMo this year!
I hope your “Preptober” went well!
(As a pantser who is trying to be more of a plotter, I thought this article over at Dragon Soul Press was great! https://dragonsoulpress.com/2021/10/24/preptober-as-a-pantser/)
So, I haven’t fully committed to NaNoWriMo yet. I did commit, and then I changed my mind, and then I accidently deleted my former NaNoWriMo participatory projects (I’m really having an off week!) and now I’m changing my mind again. Either way, I’m hoping that I can regain some focus in my writing, whether or not I “win”.
And, dang, I swore there was another post that examined the NaNoWriMo phenomenon (pros and cons) that I wanted to put in, but when I went back to the blog I swore it was on, I couldn’t find it. (But I really enjoyed the read, I promise!)
So, to all my bloggers out there with recent NaNoWriMo-themed posts (or Preptober, even), please share them in the comments!
And if you’re in need of inspiration, check out my “Tarot Cards for Inspiration” posts over at Horror Tree. https://horrortree.com/?s=tarot+cards The next one will come out in November!
I’m going to take a quick break from the “Five Things Friday” author interviews. It’s just for November, and I’ll be attempting to make different recipes and my opinion of said recipes, because we’ll need some tasty (and quick!) meals to get us through NaNoWriMo, right?
Lastly, I wanted to let you all know that my upcoming Wednesday post is going to be an intense one, and will contain graphic images and text regarding a local situation that had developed with an injured owl. It was difficult for me to write, but I am still determined to advocate on behalf of this owl, to ensure that other wild animals do not meet the same fate. Even just to raise awareness of the state of things here in my new town would be an important step.
I hope you read it, nonetheless. But I will completely understand if you skip it.
(I cried, a lot, while writing both the post, and the letters I mentioned in the post-to-come.)
