Livin’ the dream


So today in a SXSW session someone said, “If you don’t like your job there is someone out there who’d love to have it. And there’s someone else somewhere that has your dream job and probably hates it. We just all need to stand up and move out of the way”.

This, along with a lot of other wise observations from the group made me realize that I need to get out of the way. I need to give someone the chance to do my job and love it. I need to give myself the chance to do what I love, or at least what I think I love right now. I need the chance to be a whole person, not one bound by pain or lack of confidence. I need to give myself a chance at healing.

So how do I do that? How do I do that and have us still maintain our life and continue to meet our financial goals? I am not quite sure, but I’m going to find out, and I’m going to blog about it.

I think SXSW just changed my life.



Way down yonder in New Orleans


So I’ve been slacking in the blogging department, I know. I’ve got a plan though to make this a more regular blog. I know I keep making promises. I really am trying though to make this part of my week at the least and hopefully I can get to the point I’m posting more than once a week.

I will be posting on some projects that I cannot discuss in detail, but that will result in much frustration and hilarity though. I’ll also be posting more when I travel. My first trip of 2010 is coming up, and it’s a good one.

I’m going to Mardi Gras! Yes, in New Orleans! I haven’t been since 2006, and that MG, while wonderful to experience, was not like the joyful and exuberant celebrations that I remember as a former resident of the city.

The other totally awesome and exciting thing is that I’ll be riding in a Krewe! I guess I’m technically now in a Krewe, which is cool. I’ll be riding with Tucks on Saturday February 13th on the traditional Uptown route. It will be so exciting and I’m really going to try to take photos and capture the fun.

So stay tuned for blogging from Mardi Gras…coming soon.



winner!


I did it. I wrote a 50,014 word novel in 30 days, and while it is a very, very rough draft it’s something, something I’ve never done before so it’s pretty awesome.

So yeah, I didn’t really journal here did I? It was hard, really hard, the last week especially, so I didn’t have a lot of time for blogging. Plus, my body? It’s really pissed at me now for all that computer time, and typing (it really hated all the typing). So I needed to rest when I could. I probably shouldn’t be typing now because, frankly, it hurts. I have a massage in my future though so it’ll all be fine.

So I’m going to keep writing every day for 10-30 minutes, but I’m going to stick to exercises for the first couple of weeks and then transition into doing some character and setting work before I read the novel and starting revising it in January.

I have no idea how to revise a novel, but I’m just going to give it shot and I have a deadline for finishing (March 15th) so that should help.

I have a ton of stuff to take pictures of, but it’s so cloudy I’m not sure when I’ll get the chance. I’ll try though.



oh hai!


So you are probably wondering where I’ve been, right? I’m deeply immersed in the insanity known as NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month. Yes, a 50,000 rough draft of a novel written over 30 days. Insane, painful, fun, exciting, liberating, frustrating and very, very cool.

So I’m at about 30K words right now and I a little less than 2 weeks to finish. I think I’ll make it, but some days it’s really hard. I know that whatever happens at the end that I have proven I can write every day if I make time for it. I have sparked my imagination again so ideas are everywhere now. And I think I have hit on a great idea for a series, maybe, I don’t want to be too cocky because it might be a totally stupid idea. Since my Inner Editor is away at camp for the month, it’s hard to judge.

I am really looking forward to crossing the finish line though and am also excited about taking this rough draft and whipping something great out of it, maybe in time for the agent conference? That would be pretty cool, but I don’t want to get ahead of myself.

While the last 20K should be downhill, I do worry about pacing, and being able to time the plot correctly. I mean this is my first novel.

I have other updates, mostly the knitting kind and mostly from last month, but it’ll have to wait until later, but I’ll try to check in more. I realize it would have been nice to journal a little here about the writing process and the frustrations and anxieties it brings up. So maybe I’ll try to do that as I head into the home stretch.
