I wish I could say my conspicuous absence during November was because I managed to hide away and write for NaNo, but, alas, I didn’t participate this year. [Okay, I managed to write 5,000-something words, but it was only during the first couple hours of the first day.] Instead, I helped a friend edit his manuscript for publication, which was a great experience! I had the extra bonus of getting a chance to read his work, which is always a treat. You can pre-order the book here.
I’m refocusing my energies toward December goals now to see what I can knock off this never-ending to-do list before the ball drops on New Year’s Eve.
- Collaborate with one of my best friends to create magic, also known as a trans-Atlantic literary press.
- Write four short stories to submit to three anthologies, one of which I’m putting together.
- Officially launch my editing website.
- Register for the teaching certificate test.
- Figure out my life for 2017.
Okay, that last one is only kind of a goal. (I’m still hopelessly lost when it comes to next year, though, and I think I’m okay with that for now.) The year isn’t over yet. There are still thirty-one days to weave some magic and put out some literary vibes.
