My list for the month is fairly long and brisk. Normally, I’d participate in National Novel Writing Month, but this year, I had too many deadlines and too much travelling. Rather than drive myself crazy and put myself in a situation where I’d be unhappy, I opted not to do Nano and focus on deadlined projects.
I miss the energy of writing with several hundred thousand other people, but for me, this year, it was the sane choice.
I’m also re-thinking next year’s agenda — there’s a lot in flux for the coming year.
If yo haven’t signed up for my newsletter, why not do so this month? Starting with the November issue, I have a treat JUST for subscribers. Send an email to newsletter – at – devonellingtonwork.com with “Subscribe” in the subject line. It’s a random newsletter, coming out monthly-ish, and I expect to have the November one out sometime next week.
