After NaNoWriMo

After NaNoWriMo

It’s Been a Long Time

I participated in NaNoWriMo again this year.

The first time I NaNo’d was in November 2007.  That project went through revisions and edits and came to life during NaNoWriMo 2010.

If I Should Die has gone through an Author’s Revised Edition and appears with a new cover and editor in Kindle format at Amazon.

This year’s NaNo Project will collect dust on my hard drive but I intend to keep my character files for potential casting in another, more viable, non-NaNo project. Not every project is meant to be seen by human eyes.

Keeping Busy

Around the middle of the month, to combat my worries about the outcome of the US Presidential Election, I began two more projects.

This project will probably take me through the worries associated with the first year of the President Elect’s first term.

I have about 50 of the 660 motifs called for in the pattern.
