I know it has been a while to vent ideas via the blinking cursor into the white void of blogism. It is so.
I, again, tried to believe I could finish my first draft of my novel by entering NaNoWriMo. I even had time for it, yet I wrote less than I ever did (at least for this novel).
Instead, “Wordexpanding”, a hyperlink novel written together with my dear friend and fellow poet Ville at the Cave (the blog where I hide a lot of my writing) & Chameleon’s stories has flown away and is going fast. I really enjoy these 100 word stories and poems that we are trying to forge, without any discussions, into a larger story. They may take some research and the dense messages of 100 words is reflected in the time it takes to write them. There is no NaNoWriMo robot-high speed traffic of characters spawn via the blinking cursor into the cloud-memory mind.
So that pressure was to restrictive. Now I will write again for “The Death of an Emperor”, I will try week by week, and I will deepen the characters better (thanks to a great on-line course I am taking at the same time). Also for the course I need to write, though its a different kind of writing.
Finally, then soon I will be reading again. The winter is upon us, the cozy warm bus awaits. Humming to bring me 2 hours of reading a day. Neil Stepheson latest book is lurking at me from my bookshelf for far to long.
So I unfurl myself in the dark day today, awakening to the possibilities and so I wrote once again today. NaNoWriNoMore, but #Iamwriting!
