Monday Mayhem – Well, I have no idea where this year went…

It’s December. Can you believe that? I can’t. I have no idea where the year went. I’d claim I was busy writing, but we all know that would be a lie. I can say I was busy living.

This year has been one of reflection and reassessment for me, and I feel like I’m in a much better place than I was when it started. I spent a lot of time napping. And reading. I watched a lot of Netflix and college football. Hung out with Fodder and friends, and generally stopped throwing myself at the brick wall that is the publishing business.

Does that mean I’ve quit? Take a gander at this:

NaNoWriMo winner

I started a new project with no outline, no general plot, no idea who the characters were or really what they wanted. And it was so much fun. I made it just over the 50k mark, and little by little they are revealing themselves to me. I think this new book may even have some series potential. Stay tuned.

I’ll keep tinkering with it, but I’m glad that NaNo is over. I need to immerse myself in this whole December thing. There are holiday parties scheduled for the next two weekends, then Christmas with my branch of the family, all before the actual holiday itself.

So, yeah, time to kick it in gear. How about you? Are you ready for December?

P.S. Home in Heartsfield (formerly Spring Chickens) got a makeover! Check out this nifty new cover!

  1. I agree about this year speeding by. I already feel like December has left me in the dust – and it’s only the 2nd. Congrats on your NaNo win! (I had no doubts.) I hope it’s a project that continues to make you feel happy and engaged.

  2. Winner, winner, chicken dinner. I had no doubt that you’d complete NaNo. I’m glad you stopped throwing yourself at the brick wall because, ouch.
    The snazzy new cover is very nice. Enjoy the pre-holiday holidays as well as the actual holidays.

  3. Congrats on winning! I’m sure it had to feel like a marathon, but you are amazing and did it anyway! Enjoy the holidays, lady! You deserve a December full of fun and family!
