It's really easy to forget how quickly things pick-up. Moreover, despite being in hte middle of several books, I haven't quite finished any of them yet, hence the review-less October. However, it is likely to get worse, as this year, I am once again a participant in National Novel Writing Month, the challenge to write a 50,000 word story between November 1st and 30th.
I've tried this on three separate occasions before, veering from science fiction to alternate history to sci fi again, and to be fair, I have no idea where I'm going to go this year. The biggest problem for all participants, however, is motivation, so if you know of anyone else doing this, be sure to send them reminder emails to get their ass moving. I'll try to leave notes from the road during travels in whatever holds for my mind.
