So we did the things this month. Not all the things we wanted to do, but a lot of what we wanted to do, plus some stuff we didn’t think we were going to get to. So this Did the Thing is to the things you surprise yourself with by getting done.
We survived NaNoWriMo, even if we didn’t quite manage to make that post-a-day about it (Sorry about that). We may not finish a full draft of the story before December 1st, but that’s okay. We’ll keep going until we do. Besides, we achieved the point of the excercise for us: to have fun with and focus on a story we might not otherwise fit into our writing schedule.
We have a really good reason, though: we’re not quite done with Half Lives yet because we got a new burst of energy on Love in Los Angeles Book 4. Racheline and I spent last weekend wandering around New York City doing book research, and solved the thing we had been completely stuck on over really amazing Ethiopian food. We’ve got a lot of adding, deleting, and rewriting to do, but we’re getting it done and now the story’s singing.
So here’s to being flexible, and celebrating the things you got done, even if they weren’t the things you planned to do. Let us know, whether it’s pounding through the last few days of NaNoWriMo or surviving Thanskgiving with your family — what’s the awesome thingy weren’t sure you were going to do, but totally did this month?
