This is my post for IWSG Day, where once a month us other than entirely secure writers post a little about our current place in the writing journey.
Here’s where I’m at in December.
A couple days ago, I typed THE END on my NaNo rough draft, knowing I would have to go to work the next day. So I thought….
I was at work for a few hours on Monday when I found out I had to go home and quarantine because of a possible exposure on the 19th, before Thanksgiving.
I am fine, other than being crazy as ever, but “an abundance of caution” was mentioned several times.
In a surreal year, this is one of the strangest things yet. A week ago, I would be freaking out (probably.) Now I’m … technically still in the two-week quarantine period but obviously not dying or anything. I have been careful, yet I was at risk (without even knowing it!) because I was doing my job. Yeah. It makes me appreciate our healthcare workers even more.
I finished a draft, though. That also happened, on Sunday. And, I love the story, even if no one else ever does. It will need revision if I decide to release it into the wild – after sitting with it for a while.
Now, time to read books, pet my cats, have some hot cocoa – with marshmallows. While my rough draft sits. And my subconscious broods. Or does whatever it does when I’m not looking….
Did you Nano this year? Either way, how was your November?
Wishing all a good December.
