National Novel Writing Month starts today. Last year, I took time off from work to finish it, but this year, I’m just going to let it pass me by. This is partially because I’m managing a project due December 1st, and I just can’t afford the time. But it’s also because I have too much editing to do, and I really should finish a book one of these days.
My starting a book to finishing a book ration is about ten to one. This means I have a lot of source material to work with, and assuming I finish half of my works in progress, I will have a healthy body of work. But that’s a lot of ass in chair time. It’s a lot of hard work time vs. creativity time.
Never fear though. I’m putting in significant time on these pieces. I just need to finish something one of these days.
