Hello everyone and Happy November! Once again, I’m writing because I didn’t want to go so long between posts. October wasn’t a great month. I wrote a lot but most of the time I felt like I wasn’t producing much of anything, my characters weren’t cooperating and I kept getting distracted by other little things. Then just as I was starting to get focused again, my creative output and organization was halted by the sudden death of a very good friend of mine. She had been sick for a very long time, but she had beaten the odds so many times, we all thought we’d have her around for much longer. I’m still sort of processing that.
However, I am working on the new chapter, as well as the ones that follow it. In the meantime, I have decided that I am going to use the writing goals of NaNoWriMo to beat Elspeth & Co. into submission. Originally, I planned to start a new project for NaNo this year, but I’m not quite ready. I’m still doing a lot of brainstorming and world building for that. And since I am really enjoying that process and am not feeling particularly inspired to rush it, I thought I’d use November to get back to finishing the Epic Disaster.
