OK, laziness interlude is over, though it was pretty nice while it lasted. Still, there’s something about getting back to it, to seeing the work stretch ahead of you, to the challenge of getting through it.
A finished manuscript is not a finished book. And with NaNoWriMo, or in my case, NaNoFiMo (I really should log into the site before November 1) rushing toward us, I need to take some steps toward completion before I can’t see anything beyond the end of my keyboard.
Though who knows, maybe the entirely different set of problems to solve will be a fun break during the writing madness.
So I will try to be a good blogger, and a good tweeter, and a good finisher now that I’ve had a little time to regroup. Though we’ll see how the blogging will go in the throes of NaNoWriMo. But sometimes, the best thing about having a lot on your plate is getting to taste it all.
Meanwhile, I will keep you posted about the metamorphosis from manuscript to book as it emerges from its little literary cocoon. I’m excited to share some details, but it’s just not time yet. Soon, though.
I don’t usually throw myself into another book so quickly, or in the case of this year’s NaNo, books. I generally give myself a little more space between, but I am actually looking forward to getting back to it nearly immediately. Maybe it will become a habit.
Maybe it will become the stuff of legendary bad ideas.
I’ll never know until I try. I might find myself nostalgic for the laziness.
