Obligatory Pre-NaNo Post

I’m a pantser so there won’t be any tips or tricks in this post on how to prepare for next month’s writing festival. There also won’t be any rants about how harried I feel with the start time looming on the horizon and how I have no idea what I’m going to write.

You see, come November 1st, I will sit down at my designated writing time and do just that, write. My Muse and my Divinity will step up, I will say a short prayer of sorts which will open our line of communication.  They will speak, I will type.  Will they have me go full on rebel and work on cleaning up my existing drafts (all three of them could benefit from the editing and or addition of 50K words) or will they have me dive into Code Name: Onyx Butterfly – my original NaNo 2016 idea?  Who knows.

I can tell you this, though, I’ve worked through my three life situations. The 3rd comes to an end and a beginning tomorrow and Monday. By November 1st, I will have a strong idea of what the remaining months of 2016 will look like financially; I’ll have established some sort of plan for my new family situation that will carry us through to the end of the year.  With all of that comes room in my head for my heart, if that makes any sense. During all the mayhem, my feelings got set aside. It was out of necessity so I could function, I get that now. But I’m ready for my feelings to be back in the driver’s seat. I miss doing things for myself that generate my desired feelings.

So, I’m ready to tune back into the written word; ready to get back to my real life. Ready to earn my fourth November NaNo badge.


Thanks for stopping by today.  Hope you are finding your way.

Love you!
