I attended a writer’s conference last week and I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about my writing career, such as it is. With my full time job, full time family, and full time school, it’s been really hard to find time to be writerly.
I’ve participated in NaNoWriMo for 12 years and this year will mark the 10 year anniversary of my first win. It’s been a regular in my writing routine that there is never a question about whether I’ll plan a novel for November. But now that I’ve won more frequently than I’ve lost, do I need NaNoWriMo anymore?
This past week I heard an author refer to her books as her babies and it got me thinking. For years I worked on my book baby; I brainstormed, did character sketches, daydreamed, built it up, put it on a pedestal, and made it a monster undertaking.
Happy Tuesday folks. I picked up this little guy while out and about. I saw him and couldn’t leave him in the store. He’s been sitting on my writing desk ever since and now he needs a name. What would you name a purple dragon? Leave your suggestions in the comments below.
