On Fire!

ROW80LogocopyOK, so I completely bombed NaNoWriMo this year. I have accepted that in a zen kind of way. And this past week of writing has been incredible, even though none of it has been on my WIP.

I have two short stories out in anthologies this year. One came out around Halloween, the other is due out 12-12-12. (It’s 1:30 in the morning… I’m not adding any more details, but I’ve talked about them both on the blog numerous times and it’s not hard to find out more if you wanna…)

I’ve been tempted by not just one, but three more anthologies. Part of the fun is that they’re quirky (more on that later) and they’re also SHORT. Just a few thousand words, and POOF I’m done! Well, then I revise, but yeah, basically I’m done. And it feels so good!

And in writing for these anthologies, I’ve got my mojo back. I really can feel bogged down when I’m novel-writing. I feel like I can’t hold the whole story in my head, and I can’t see the forest for the trees. But now I’ve had many days of well over 2k, and my writing muscles are hot and ready.

I’ll give more details later when it’s not the wee hours of the morning, and when I have something more definite to report about my submissions!

  1. heehee, your opening statement could have been what I wrote: “OK, so I completely bombed NaNoWriMo this year. I have accepted that in a zen kind of way.” Yeah, that’s me, too. But at least I’m now motivated to get my outline in order, which I wasn’t so keen on prior to this challenge. So… is that a win? lolz
