Or it’s a damn waste of time.
I’ve said it before, and it’s trite to not only say it again, but to say it now, but I am back.
Big things on the horizon – I can’t wait to share and most importantly get back to this community.
I just realized I failed you in the month of November as I went through my successful NaNoWriMo experience.
How did everyone else do? Any big takeaways? Anyone going to continue their story?
I am very pleased with my plot and I fully plan to review, edit and take it to completion.
I’ll be back later this week with some new poetry 📓📓📓
Week 1 is quickly coming to a close, we should be at the 10K mark by the end of the day, I took yesterday off so I am playing a bit of catch up but I think I will make it.
How is everyone else doing?
Today I have also released the first in my series on Hard 12 Brews (CO beer Blog) of Authors and Beers. Click the link below to see what beer I am pairing up with Ernest Hemingway.
Today is the big day – as you can see I got very specific on my plot layout. Well, at least I have an idea for my plot.
I prefer to do all of this on the fly and let the ideas roll, the story goes in all sorts of directions when I write like this. It’s all part of the adventure and I’ll keep everyone updated along the way.
It’s not too late for us to become writing buddies 😉
NaNoWriMo is coming, can you believe it’s 7 days until go time?
I can’t believe it but I have started to tentatively lay out a storyline and/or plot, it depends on how you want to view it. No more than a page or two just to give me something to run with once the clock strikes midnight.
How many of you are participating this year?
This will be my 5th and I have won 3 out of the last 4 times.
This one will be a bit more difficult than the last few attempts. I will be updating this blog, traveling to California for a week and keeping my beer blog regularly updated.
Check the link below to see the fun things we will be doing with Authors and Beers for the month of November – I would appreciate the support there too (go ahead and give it a follow), you guys have been so great on this blog.
Want to write with me?
My NaNo name is Liah2131
Anyone doing something new and different this year to increase their chances of winning? I am always on the hunt for tips for success.
Early morning, late at night.
I heard someone talking about you again.
Unlike most he spoke in reverence of your peace, of your creative space.
Spoke out of love – no one else is around, up during your moment each day.
I haven’t visited in a while.
I have no excuses – only lies to me.
I need to stay up or get up.
4am the time for poetry, novels, stories and if I am lucky, the perfect sentence.
Only when I am trying to shut off my thoughts does my subconscious dance freely.
It’s a game we both play – a wicked dance.
When I need you or want you – you can’t help but saunter off into the corner.
Tucked away in comfort, drifting towards dreams you pull me out of bed.
A single scene, a glib piece of dialogue or a character that I know I’ve met but can’t place.
All entertainment, value and stories I need to hear but they don’t exist.
How can it be?
How can I put them down in words?
It will become an obsession –
It will eventually torment me –
Maybe that will be enough.
I am sorry I have been away for a little bit over a month. It has taken quite a bit of time to get my beer blog up and running. Not only that, but a scene for a new novel popped up one day on the drive to work and I have been fleshing out the story line every since.
I am back back now and I promise to get back to regular posts.
As always I appreciate your support!
