Again? So soon?

So, another year has nearly gone. One month, or rather, 28 days to the start of NaNoWriMo. Last year was not good for me in 30 day challenges. However, I am determined this year, no matter what the distractions, sleep deprivation, tears or sheer hysteria to FTDB in 30 days.

Am doing some pre-thinking and reading to get myself prepared.

Wish me luck.

NaNoWriMo again... again

So NaNoWriMo 2009 was something of a fizzer. We won't go there.

An eventful year since, both good and bad, but I'm ready to go again.

A new story - which has a title and little else. The title? 'It's a Mystery'. LOL.

A new blog

I've started a new blog, Tannia Talks, to talk myself through to publishing success. I am keeping this one to report on challenges, beginning with the RWNZ BI50D challenge which I'm trying to get into now. I'm working on one of the part novels I found when taking stock of where I am. (See Tannia Talks). Next month, NaNoWriMo again.

Next step

So now I have a schedule in place for the next two months... baby steps. I'm going to work on a piece for the Cup of Comfort series. I think a change of genre, length and approach will freshen me up. Also working on a brand new website to launch me on the next stage. Watch this space.

Claytons Conference

Wow! What a great online event. Hats off the lovely table top dancers for organisation, input and energy. My time management mini workshop and editing thoughts were well received, so I was happy with that too.

Have been flat out with paid work this last week, but about to sit down and make some new writing plans/goals. My own time management was getting very slack so presenting the workshop motivated me too.

Steady progress

Things are improving a little. I'm making the commitment to myself and my writing to leave the chores/housework etc and write. I am not going to make one of my deadlines, but I'm not happy with that WIP anyway so not a tragedy if it is not submitted on time. However, the other ones, for contributions to the upcoming Claytons Conference for RWA are on track. About to set some new short term goals. I feel more positive now.

I'm trying...

Hmmm... motivation seems to have slipped a little. Or maybe it's just a lot of 'clutter' getting in the way. You know, life, work, family... LOL. I have dabbled on the odd evening, but not making much progress. Seem to be very tired a lot of the time. I think it's the mid-winter doldrums. Determined to kick myself out of it. I have deadlines, real and self imposed.

I will do better, I will do better....
