Apologies and Updates

First, I'd like to say that I'm sorry it has been so long since I posted. I received some tragic news while I was on my working vacation and I have been slowly trying to piece things back together. Although I have a long way to go to get there I am going to try and use my writing to keep me occupied while I heal.

As for updates... As all of you know it is November. (Yes, I'm extremely observant) As some of you may know November is NaNoWriMo. This being my third year participating I took on a Municipal Liaison position, along with a very good friend of mine. That means a lot of my time has been spent putting together goody bags, organizing write-ins, and general NaNo shenanigans. Sadly, my writing has taken a hit. I'm so far behind in the word count there is a good chance that I will not finish this year. But I'm ok with that.

For the first time ever, I have decided that it is ok to "fail" as long as I have fun doing it. And I am having a blast! I've met so many new and awesome people that I actually spend most of my time at write-ins just chatting away. That's not to say I haven't been writing because I've put together a good 15,000 as of today. And I plan on continuing that.

The biggest problem I'm facing is that I have NO PLOT!! I keep hoping that as I write more something plot like will come along but so far it is all in vain. I have characters, a setting, a couple minor events, and a bit of background information, but where it is all going to go is still a mystery to me. I'm hoping it comes up soon, I can only handle so much boring-ness.

  1. I hate the dreaded "no plot" thing. It makes you want to stop writing all together.
