Write or… bust?

It’s almost that time of year again and I’m still on the fence about doing NaNoWriMo this year. I can always use more motivation to write and I definitely have enough that still needs to be written. At the moment, the only thing holding me back is Real Life stuff… ok, and also the world out there is on fire and my creativity has been taking a hit because of it. I know I’m not alone in that feeling, but it doesn’t make it any easier to work through.

When I can focus, I’ve been kicking around a list of projects that need to be worked on. In addition to possibly doing a full write-from-scratch new draft of my current novel (which probably needs to happen… ugh), I also need to work on a pilot and a few spec scripts. Also, I’ve been kicking around an idea for a novella. Perhaps NaNo will help my momentum with these projects? I’ve been so stagnant this year.

Meanwhile, I’ve also been poking around the forums and looking at all the Prep-tember stuff. I’m definitely a pantser, so I won’t be plotting every detail. But it always gets things percolating! xTgozbBBc
