Fifty-thousand words in about 20 days is taxing on the wrists. But I started a new project, one I’ve hesitated writing for a long time. Now was a good time and NaNo a good reason to write the SFD (“shitty first draft” in Anne Lamott-speak). I probably have another 10K-15K to write, and then I will put it away for a little while to rest before reviewing it and starting the second draft, etc. Fellow writers know how it goes.
In the meantime, I have a historical project to begin researching, a flash piece to revise, and I continue to see rejections from agents for novel #1. Plus, I sent out the last story from my grad school days to five journals. We’ll see where that goes. I’m hoping to find a home for it.
Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends, and happy November to everyone!
