November Looming as I Stretch my Writerly Muscles!

by Crystal Paradis-Catanzaro

Oh, just look at me… so young, so full of hope and the promise of more words! I was 25 days into NaNoWriMo last year when I took this photo… little I know, then on the precipice of finishing what was inarguably a work of pure genus, that it would be September of the following year and I’d still have that same draft, unable to cut anything that would remove the few early plot holes that came of “pantsing” the whole novel.

It’s currently just over a month away from NaNoWriMo 2012, and … the sight of this photo terrifies the ever-livin’ outta me.

My apologies in advance to the universe for becoming a complete hermit throughout November. Send green tea and more Batman soundtracks if you must; other than to selfishly accept such offerings, I shall be unreachable.

Here’s to another month of frivolity before the November of Delirious Solitude!
