I was meaning to make a real update, but instead I thought I’d write about my plans to do NaNoWriMo. Last year, I had signed up, but I didn’t end up doing it for a few reasons. One reason was the fact that I’m *really bad* at writing fiction that has an ending. Middles are even a bit hard. It seems that my writing skills are primarily in the non-fiction catagory, and even when I have attempted to write fiction, it’s ended up as sort of a veiled reality.
This year, I hope for better. This year, I think maybe a lesbian erotic thriller might be in the works. That might be asking too much for myself, but it’s not like I’m working much these days. Here’s hoping for organization and inspiration.
Other projects I need to work on: finding a place to volunteer to get me closer to a job in social work, dressing up my resume and sending out a bunch of packets that show my greatness to would-be employers, work on some more scholarly like essays and post them here… and PROFIT. Or something.
Keep your fingers crossed that this all works out.
One thought on “NaNoWriMo and other projects”
I really like the clean look of your blog.
My name is Tina and I found your blog through… um… underwater photo community on lj –> major beefcake on lj –> disappearinjon on lj –> ironheadjane (I think?)
Anyway, I was just clicking around on links and it’s pretty cool that you posted about NaNoWriMo! My boyfriend and I were going to try doing it last year and it fizzled out. Like our exercise program! So of course, he was just mentioning it to me last week.
“hey… guess what NaNoWriMo is coming up soon. Want to try again? Hmmm? Hmm?”
I don’t know how to write at all. But it sounds like a great exercise.
Also, I just read your earlier post – it’s weird and neat to read someone talking about listening to KEXP while I have KEXP streaming on my computer for the first time ever (I just moved to Seattle last month from Bellevue where I didn’t have internet and have only listened at work).
We are hoping to leave work a little early and catch the tail end of the KEXP Halloween party and open house at the studio.
Sorry for rambling, have a nice Halloween!
