In November I aligned myself to NaNoWriMo and was inspired to write 1k words daily for over 2 weeks. It was a new kind of challenge and in that time I was consistent and productive. Mid-month I got distracted with editing for the several pieces of work I’d created. Then life got busy in other ways and I couldn’t continue with the daily 1k discipline.
The benefit of all this was that now I know I can write 1k (or more) words a day which could make a novella happening in one month seem way less daunting. Get to it, girl…
Since writing the above in the past fortnight a strong voice in my head has put it to me that in 2021 I should focus some consistent ideas I’ve had on creating an 80,000k novel. And why not? The task seems a lot less daunting since I got in the run with NaNo this year.
Keeping that in mind, I will still be following up a pitch that’s on the verge of emerging, as well as more lovely poetry, short stories and drabbles. The way to go.
Coming soon from Black Hare Press
Ending on a short note. I don’t doubt that 2021 will be full of surprises. There’s benefit in everything – even though it may not seem that way whilst in the thick of it. Time to reassess, re-evaluate, and not throw out the baby with the bathwater. It’s not the time to give oneself pain at somebody else’s mistakes. Breathe, stand back, and head in your chosen direction. This makes sense to me. Enjoy time with friends and fam at Christmas. Keep smelling the roses. 💜🌿💎🎈🌲🎈💎🌿💜
