Is there a setting besides fast?

October has been a whirl, and November is promising to be over in the blink of an eye. My workload has picked up at work after I was named editor of our Michiana House & Home publication, and let me just say, it is creepy seeing a photo of myself inside a magazine!

While I’m not participating in NaNoWriMo this year, I’ve managed to capture the writing spirit just fine this November, making major progress on my SciFi novel … it has yet to be named, lol. I’m slightly hopeful that the first draft will be completed prior to the new year, but of course, I’m also in the process of moving — as long as the mortgage continues to proceed according to plans — so it is hard to say for sure.

Additionally, I have plans to tackle more short stories, even managing to complete one for Clarkesworld’s cyborg anthology “Upgraded.” So wish me luck, I’m still 103 on their queue list. And beyond that, I’m finding I have plenty of pieces to read and edit, which is great fun.

So what are your writing plans for the rest of the year? Or how is NaNoWriMo going if you’ve decided to participate?

  1. Good luck! I’m in the same boat as you. I have a ton to do and increasingly less time to do it in. My feeble attempt at NaNoWriMo has failed miserably–no surprise there–but I’m still managing to make progress on my book, so it’s not a total loss.

  2. Good luck with your projects. It’s about to be a new year already. I’m not sure where 2013 went. I’m going to tackle a novel that will most likely include a prequel and sequel. I would like to have a completed draft for the first one before 2014 ends.
