I'm back!

Well, I survived a whole month of being sick. What was a cold turned into pneumonia and I battled with that for days on and off.

I have signed up for Nanowrimo which is a world wide writing challenge. The goal is to write a 50,000 word novel in a month. I don't know if I will even get near that goal, but I did write 44 tho last September so I know I can come close.

I debated for a long time on what I should work on in November, my space western or me sequel to my current WIP sci/fi. It has been a long and hard decision, because in someways I am ready for something new. But in some ways I have the sequel in my head so strong, that it's impossible to escape thinking about it. Almost like I was obsessed. :)

In the end I deciced that I would work on the sequel since the plot is completely hammered out and is complete. The rough draft was written last year the rewirte should be easy and fun.

Either way, I am looking forward to a month of great writing.

Hey Michelle! I'm so sorry to hear you've been so sick. BUT glad you're back and ready to hit the ground running with NaNo. I'm doing NaNo too this year--friend me "happygrrl"

Glad you're feeling better. I had a scare the other day when I couldn't stop sneezing and tearing up. I thought for sure I had the onset of Flu but apparently it was just an allergy because the next day it was gone. WTF??

Anyways, NaNo requires a lot of motivation. I had to make a similar decision a couple weeks ago, and finally went with the project that called to me, and I've never looked back. Good luck, and keep us updated!
