This week has been fabulous for me. I participated in voice week and have to say that the quality of writing produced by the other writers was amazing. It was a fabulous experience for me and I am so glad I did it. I apologise for not getting around to many of the blogs I read regularly this week but I was honestly totally immersed in the experience.
So believe it or not it is October already. I adore October because it has my favourite all time holiday in it. Yes, I have always been and will always be a giant Halloween junkie. I love for one day I can dress however I want and take on another persona and not look completely out of place doing it.
Now since it is October it means last month’s challenge has come to an end. It was a Back to School theme. Here are the fabulous entries from that challenge:
Michael Lyons gave us a fantastic and very creative back to school tale called School Daze.
Ozlem Yikici decided to combine challenges again and came up with an interesting twist that involved the school theme based on Hansel and Gretel.
October is shaping up to be a very busy month already. I have signed up for NaNoWriMo and will busy working on a very extensive outline this month in hopes of being able to complete the challenge. I have never participated before and have never written anything that fast so it will be a true challenge for me. It will also force me to use all the new organisational skills I have practised lately and it will mean I can not fall back on my pantser habits.
I have nearly finished rewriting and editing my novel and have lined up another beta reader to send it off to when it is finished. I hope it will be received well!
I have agreed to guest blog on a couple of my friends blogs over the next couple of months and have joined in a few interesting writing projects. I also am beta reading someone else’s novel for the first time.
All this is very exciting but will no doubt be quite time consuming. I have decided not to issue a challenge for this month. I will continue writing What if? Wednesday and Fearsome Friday and figure if either of those inspires someone to write about the topics discussed then I welcome them sharing their stories and will link them in my blog posts.
How about all of you? Any exciting news or projects in the works?
