Perfect mix of magic and mayhem

BRB, participating in #NaNoWriMo

So, I’m participating in NaNo this year. It’s been a while since I’ve done this because it was difficult to get any words in last year after I started my new, super challenging job. But this year, I took time off for the first couple of weeks of November so I can fully commit to writing the sequel of my last Nano win. I’m not as prepared as I was the last time around, because my outline is not finished, so I’ll have to pants through some of the parts, but with more time especially at the beginning, I’m hoping I’ll get the majority of the book done before I have to go back to work.

While I have a lot of social events planned for my holidays (since part of it is for me to recharge and recover after a hard year at work), I will be doing a lot of writing in between. I’m hoping to dedicate at least one day to completing my Vox Machina Word Crawl to see what the total for a day like that would be (it’ll be insane, I can’t wait) and two other days for completing two different word crawls I got linked to in the Nano forums (there are A LOT of word crawls and I love doing them, so it will be a hard choice to settle on just two).

Wish me luck. And if anyone wants to buddy up, I’m alexcallahan over on the Nano website 🙂

Happy Birthday! To ME! To Alex! To Life!

I’m 33 today.

Sometimes it feels like way more than that. And sometimes it feels like I’m barely out of my teens. turns 5 today.

Sometimes it feels like this website and my writing career has been around for much longer than that. And sometimes it feels like it was only yesterday when I decided I wanted to pursue writing.

5 years ago, I decided I wanted to be a writer and I wanted to publish books and have that as my career. I also started plotting out my first serious original novel. It would take me ages to complete and edit, but it would later become the book I’m agent shopping right now.

Since then I managed to complete 5 novels, all waiting patiently to be edited and let out into the world, I’m working on a 6th one right now.

In that time, I really do feel like I’ve become a better writer, and I’m clarified my goals and how I want to reach them. It’s been a crazy ride and I know that it’s nowhere near the end. In fact, I’m really looking forward to where it might take me in the future 🙂
