Guess who’s back, back again Shady’s back, tell a friend…
Did you sing it too? I totally did. 🙂 Well, not really Slim Shady, but I’m back to the world of blogging. I’m sorry to those of you that follow my posts for being away for an entire month.
It was NaNoWriMo and I gave it a try. I think I did alright for a first timer – 20K words in 3 weeks isn’t too bad.
I did however, learn a lot and have grown a new special respect for those that write for a living. Guys!!! It’s not an easy task to come up with so many words to make sense together. And when you figure that part of out, it’s definitely not easy to bring any emotions from those words.
The difference between telling and showing, wow hard, hard, hard work! But you gotta start from somewhere and follow through right…
So I have written 20K words on a book/novel that I hope to finish and hit publish (one day). I had a lot of fun during this process and have met a lot of new aspiring writers, bounced ideas with and have become friends with already published authors and have grown as a person.
I’ve set goals and I reached them each and every time, until life got in the way, brain turned into a mush, and coffee became tasteless. But it is what it is, so i listened to my body and gave it what it needed, some time to rest. 🙂
I’m writing this long, winded random string of words to give a bit of an update on what I’ve been doing in this month and that I’m alive and well. 🙂 I might at one point, share a chapter or two of what I have written so far, in the ‘short stories by ebs’ section of the blog but know that the chapters will be out of order. Because, why not 🤷♀️😊
Thanks for reading all.
