Oh look, it’s been months since I last posted that must mean I’m juuuusst about due for another rant/post. And this time I’ve actually been up to stuff! Dun dun duuuunn!
I’ve been chipping away at my writing – still having weekly meet ups with the NaNo crew to keep my motivation up. A few short stories are almost ready to do the rounds and I’m making good progress on my current novel.
I completed Tough Mudder last month (hey, you in the back – stop laughing!) which was bloody fantastic, and bloody painful. 12 miles of horrendous obstacles that nearly killed me, but ultimately left me feeling pretty good about myself. I’ve already signed up for next year. You can see my photos here.
I’ll be attending WFC2013 and you could say I’m a tad excited…you could also say OMGWTFBBQWFC!! But you still wouldn’t quite capture how excited I am to be going. Schmoozing with the stars and drinking with the best of the best – it’s going to be the holiday I’ve needed for a few years now. The amount of talent attending is staggering and the relaxed atmosphere means I should get to meet quite a few of them. It will be nice to talk to some of the people I’ve known only on t’internet up until now – and it will be a good opportunity for me to get my face out there as well. Do the rounds, so to speak.
NaNoWriMo is just around the corner as well, with just a few more weeks until it all kicks off. There will be a bit of an overlap with WFC and NaNo this year, but I’ll console myself from missing the first few days by having a pint with Joe Hill.
I’ve decided to up the ante this year and double the usual word count. That’s right; I’ll be going for 100,000 words this year…eep.
Who else is up for some NaNoWriMo shenanigans then? Add me as a NaNo buddy here.
