For reasons I have yet to fully comprehend, I’ve decided to take a crack at this year’s NaNoWriMo. I don’t actually have a whole story in mind yet, but I keep coming up with various scenarios for a character that stays pretty consistent. I mentioned this on a mailing list I’m on and they suggested that I just start by writing out those scenes and that may help the rest of the story come into focus. That sounds reasonable, and I realized I’ve spent quite a bit of time this year critiquing other’s work so maybe I should see what it’s like on the other side.
So, with prayers to Bragi for inspiration and guidance, a heart full of hope, a stomach full of butterflies and a little voice in my head rolling on the gray matter laughing I’m going to dive in head first. Anyone have any spare life preservers?
