Well, February was a bit of a rough month. Needless to say it felt like I lost a month and a half of being productive as I had to rest and heal. That being said, I'm feeling better and things are looking up! WOOT!
February and the beginning of March were also what we were calling "Snowmaggedon" around here, and our Saturday February workshop by MJ Colette on Writing Erotica (to go with our Valentine Social) actually had to be cancelled because of the weather and roads. The ARWA board doesn't take those decisions lightly, but we felt it was best for our members.
Looking at my blog I note I haven't blogged since Dad passed, and that was far to long ago. I honestly had no heart to do it, and my writing was not up to par either.
Time to change. New website design, new writer business cards, new determination to finish the few stories I DO have on the go right now.
Seriously, the last few years I have not been writing nearly as much as I wanted to be. Call it writers block, call it laziness, I just had no desire.
Although I have had a fantastic time both sitting on panels at When Words Collide here in Calgary and attending the fabulous workshops both at WWC and at our monthly ARWA meetings and Saturday workshops, I just couldn't get motivated to write.
Well, so far November hasn't hurt as much as I thought it would!
So...NanoWrimo. Yes, it IS NanoWrimo month and believe it or not - I HAVE been writing during lunch!!! On the plus side, I'm surprised at how well it's coming along. On the down side, I realize I've been too busy to update my "word count" on my NanoWrimo writers page. Whoops. My bad.
Not at 50,000 words as yet, though I still have 8 days in the month to write. If I write more than my hour at lunch, I may be able to do it.
Well, it's that time of year again. NanoWrimo time! I tried it last year, and failed spectacularly, if I do say so myself!!! Well, that's a lie - I came close. However, since I didn't finish, I call it a fail. I just had far to much going on in my life (which yes, I AM aware is a huge excuse) but seriously...I did.

- even if you are starting late - you have all of November!!
Samhain has just recently passed and of course, since my ARWA meeting was on October 27th, I went in costume.
