This is the first year I’m doing National Novel Writing Month as a full-time writer. Unfortunately, it’s also the year I’m doing it as a part-time sick person. So I’m timing work bouts around the schedule for taking pain meds, because the latter disorient me, and the sleep schedule, which lately is requiring 9-10 hours a night.
Nonetheless, all the while I’ve been hanging out with my fictional characters, when I haven’t been out following the world on Twitter. (My buddy Devin Harnois warned me that it was addictive. He wasn’t kidding.)
My buds are pulling ahead of me, to their considerable astonishment. Me, I’m just doing this one day at a time.
Headed out now to get a walk in the autumnal grey.
