That’s right. The next six weeks should be a manic journey of edit, write, learn, write!
In just 4 days the Surrey International Writer’s Conference starts. I treated myself to one of the master classes on Thursday. On editing. It should be noted that I loathe editing. I recognize the importance of it, but it makes me crazy! Then starting Friday is the fullness of the conference. It can’t top the fabulousness of last year, methinks, but I’m still seriously looking forward to it.
I had originally planned on taking the week after off so I could enjoy some post-conference obsessive writing. But alas, the day job has intervened and now I won’t be off until November.
Now the advantage there is that I’m also planning on doing NaNoWriMo for the first time ever. Write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days. Sure, I can do that! Luckily for me, that holiday has been rescheduled to November. That should help!
I’ve also got a little fun project on the go about the alien vampiric were-rabbits. Check back, I’ll be posting.
And finally I’m working on a non-fiction project that I need to edit the shit out of also in the next 6 weeks or so. Whew, it’s nuts, I tell you, nuts!
And what amazing insanity it will be. Sign me up, Scotty!
