Looking to the Future

I did not win at Camp Nanowrimo.

It’s not like I went in thinking I was going to win (okay maybe a little) but the more practical side knew better. My practical side recognized that I had recently started an internship while embarking on my final class. My practical side recognized that I had kids starting school, household obligations, and when it came down to it my internship was tiring me out (in a good way). So I got some writing done but I did not win.

But, its okay. It was actually eye opening.

What I lacked in the expected word count, I made up for in finding was to get re-energized and re-focused on my writing ambitions. I read as much as a could, I chatted with some great cabin mates, and got to craft the beginning of a great story. But the biggest thing I learned was not to give up and that writing is a long process.

So with this revelation in mind, I am now back to the story I feel like I have been revising forever – my NA SciFi piece. Why? Because I really love this story and we are not done yet. I want to get this story in fighting shape and send it out so it can truly be a contender. Thus, it will be my major September project – Cycles – The Revisions.

In the mean time, I plan to rest! I am officially finished with my program and now have an MPH! I am going to eat, read my friend’s blogs, drink, watch tons of TV, and read things on my nook. Then in September, I start the word war again.

What are your future writing plans?
