It’s been a busy year! I’ve switched full time jobs, resumed my graduate studies at OSU, and renewed my goals for creativity. There is also good news coming for The Magnolia Review, which I can’t share yet.
I’ve started a Dream Book, my term for a book that collects my lists and dreams in one place. A place to explore ideas and to return to them later. I chose a handmade book made by Meagan Meli, because the cover says, “Here lies my thoughts undone, Started many, finished none.” Which both makes me laugh and makes me want to see if I can finish more than none.
I’ve also decided to tackle my various comic project ideas, and just practice making comics in general.
My writing focus will be on revising a traditional novel, drawing ASHES: THE GRAPHIC NOVEL, and writing my new NaNo novel project.
I’ve also been reading quite a bit, and I’ve read 95 books so far this year. It’s nice to be back in the reading swing of things!
Until next time, and be creative,
I started a Tiny Letter Account, if you’d like to sign up for a short update on my creative projects.
I made it to 50,000 words on the 13th. I was able to officially validate my novel today and be declared a winner. Right now I have 55,952 words. Now to finish some letters for my book and work on the comic layouts.
Made it to 41,102 words. Almost there!
Made it to 20,018. Winter Wheat helped give me some ideas for this novel and more. It was a good weekend.
I made it to 10,816 words on day 2. Today I made it 16,594. On track for the reverse NaNo!
Made it 8,589 words so far. Reverse NaNo is working so far this year.
