Sat down and read The Elements of Style and at the same time I am listening to Stephen King’s On Writing via CD. I think this was a bit of overdose in the department of “Considering the Craft” and I’ve been almost paralyzed the last two days. Up to this point I had written more than a few sentences of notes on situations that might be interesting for future stories. It’s a lot to process and I’m sure I’m not even close to internalizing all of it. At the same time, I need to push some of it out of the way and get back to the actual practice of writing. It’s a new month, which means new writing goals!
I’m also glad to see that Camp NaNoWriMo is going to be in July and August. I was a bit bummed when I thought it was going to be in July and I wasn’t sure I could participate. Now I can have a full month to psych myself up (and forewarn the misses) before diving in on August 1st.
