I’m quite inspired today by my writer friend, J. R. Biery, in her quest to blog each day. As is often the case for my unconventional ways, I want to start today and not wait for a new month.
I just finished two wrimos, the fabulous JuNoWriMo and July Camp NaNoWriMo, back to back with a combined total of 75,000 words. Now is the aftermath stage of having two drafts to finish and edit, along with my April Camp NaNoWriMo draft to edit. I hope I can get all of this finished by November, but I’ll still charge ahead into NaNoWriMo regardless of my progress on other things.
This week I’ve taken a vacation from writing and am slowly emerging from the time-off cocoon. I’ve really enjoyed my week, though, watching films like Woman In Gold and Imitation Game, reading and knitting. I just started knitting in late April but I’ve gotten comfortable with it and enjoy making scarves. It’s a great time to clear my mind and get story ideas. Another idea I’m pondering is selling scarves online. I made a few for family and friends and everyone has encouraged me to start selling them. I’ll post a few pictures and would love feedback from readers.
