"Play a role that's bigger than life, and play it like you believe it!" Rediscovered how much I love writing when I stumbled upon the NaNoWriMo website, the last week of October. I couldn't resist accepting the challenge, and at midnight on November 30 I had 76,000 words of a brand new novel (Gloxia Blues). Then I got truly crazy and joined in NaNoWriDay, stayed up for 24 hours and slammed out 50,000 words of another new novel (The Muses Door). I gathered together all my lost stories and story ideas from 30 years ago, and now have 21 books to work on, not counting the autobiography. Have an idea in mind to try my hand at scriptwriting for ScriptFrenzy, and ought to submit a few dozen entries for the Bulwer-Lytton contest. Not to mention looking forward to taking Protaganize stories in whole new directions ... This is gonna seriously cut down on time to play drums!
