NaNoWriMo…I’m so glad I chose to do it! We are nearing the halfway mark of the challenge, and although I felt like I made a mistake taking this on at first, I’m suddenly filled with more ideas, new inspirations and well…just all around better writing mojo. Even though I have been working on the second book to the Eramane Trilogy, taking a step away from it has truly paid off. My mind needed a break from the story, and to get a chance to write another book without feeling too guilty about taking my attention from the baby (Eramane, not a real baby, gah) has been a relief. Sitting at my laptop, beyond what I normally would, stretching my imagination, flexing my creative wings, I feel something magical is happening. But it goes beyond what I am doing. Knowing that others, over 200,000, are doing this and most likely feeling the same as me, is comforting and exciting. What worlds are being created now, even as I type? Who is telling a story that they had jailed in their skull? How many writers are feeling rejuvenated and exhausted at once, like they have just sent their mind to a kick-ass cross-fit class? Awesomeness is happening…it’s out there at this moment, appearing one typed letter at a time.
