I decided to take Creighton’s advice and do something completely different. I thought about my NaNoWriMo success(es) and what worked there and how much fun I had working on that project. He was right that part of the reason for that success was that I wasn’t invested in that piece in the same way that I had (have) become in some of my other works. (You may know what piece I’m talking about, in particular…)
So it’s not that I have given up. I just got serious about putting real space between me and that … that … that werk.
Good whisk(e)y is aged 14 years, right?
Anyway, the wink-wink-nudge-nudge admission is that part of my time on this vacation was spent putting pen to paper in a bargain-basement sketchbook, kinking out a first draft of a short story using a lot of the same methods and techniques that I picked up in November. I guess since I’m back from my vacation tomorrow, I can tell you all how it went.
