It’s Been a While….

I realize it’s been far too long since I’ve updated this blog. I’d say that life has been busy for me, but that would only be a half truth.

If I’m to be completely honest with myself, I backed away from writing for a while. I pushed myself harder than I ever had before during April’s Camp NaNoWriMo, and I not only got burnt out, but I lost hope. I kept telling myself that my writing wasn’t going to get anywhere, and I let myself step away for a while.

In this end, this was a good thing. Because now Novemeber’s NaNoWriMo is going to be underway in a few short weeks, and you know what? I think I’m ready.

I’ve read through the 65K words I’ve already written for Soul Weaver, and while I’m able to spot many places that need some detailed editing, I’ve also refreshed my mind on the story and where it was going.

I don’t know if I have exactly 50K words to write for November’s WriMo, but I know I can come darn close. Not to mention I can always edit to get the last few thousand in.

Do you know what I miss though? I miss the writer’s group I became a part of back in June. It’s a shame that I can’t continue it. It’s a shame that they never got a chance to critique Soul Weaver, because I honestly think that would have been good motivation to keep writing these past few months.

Anyone know of any good online writer’s groups out there?
