Heyo! Welcome to today’s Silly Sunday. Sorry for missing yesterday; it was 4am before I realized Saturday had actually ended…
It is officially October. This means three things: my birthday, Halloween, and the
anxiety-inducing mental labyrinth joy that is NaNo Prep. For the next month, a lot of people are going to be elbow deep in preparing for the month-long word flinging extravaganza that is NaNoWriMo. One month, fifty thousand words… WTF are all of us THINKING?!
So, I’m going to take the opportunity today to be super serial. As it’s not my turn to write tomorrow (though I have no trouble stepping in because I’ve *always* got something to say; it’s one of my more annoying qualities), I wanted to take a minute to tell you that, if you find yourself needing help or even just someone to talk to, please — PLEASE — feel free to find me either here or on Twitter. I’m even OK with DMs if it’s writing talk, and I will get back to you within the day. Because, even if the actual act of putting words to paper is a solitary one, as a writer you are part of a community, and I want to make sure you know that. I want to make sure that, no matter what, you understand that someone is there to listen and to chat.
Spread the word. NaNoPrep is here. NaNo is around the corner. And, like Frasier Crane, I’m listening. (Why, yes… I have been binge watching Frasier lately. How’d you know?)
