I'm Still Here ... Typing Furiously

I've been missing my blog this week and some of the memes I participate in and for those wondering where I am, I'm still here in the back ground. I took up the NaNoWriMo challenge this month and trying to give a really serious go at it. With work, family, keeping up with reviewing commitments and then throwing the daily goal of writing 1700 words, unfortunately something had to give and my blog drew the short straw.

I'm doing really well so far in writing my novel (hahaha that sounds so weird to see myself type that) and it's an amazing experience. I'm a perfectionist and I'm really having to learn to let that go and just let the story run its course. I learned rather quickly that forcing the storyline one way when the characters want to go another leads to nothing but me staring at my laptop. When I let them have free rein, letting them know the direction, I can't type fast enough and they always end up surprising me. It's unique to say the least being on the other side of a book and it's giving me a deeper appreciation, sense of gratitude and all round awe for authors. The process is all consuming, alot emotions being poured into creating the story and it sparks the need of making sure I'm respectful to those that provide me hours of amazing reading. Books don't just create themselves (even though in my case it'd be nice if they did) Anyway, just some of the thoughts that've popped up over the past week. Hope you're all doing well and enjoy your weekend. Happy reading !!

Sounds like you are having a great time writing, even if it is frustrating at times! Good for you, for keeping up with it :D Do we get to read some of your writing after you're done? *wink wink nudge nudge*
