I’ve managed to finish a draft of “The Spaceport” for NaNo!
This was an interesting experience. I had to fight through food poisoning, holiday planning, emotional ups and downs…and yet this was one of the most fun projects I’ve ever taken on. It took me back to my early years as a writer, when I could work with complete abandon. The quality is maybe a little better than it was back then, but not much. The story still needs a lot of editing as several characters changed significantly as the story unfolded. I need to go back and add in all of the layers of interpersonal dynamics and clean up some serious point of view issues, but it is done.
Now I need to return to real life and do things like laundry and cleaning the house.
I’ll also be pondering: could I do this on a daily basis? Because this is the pace a professional author needs to maintain in our modern world.
