Weekend Coffee Share is a time for us to take a break out of our lives and enjoy some time catching up with friends (old and new)!
Grab a cup of coffee and share with us! What’s been going on in your life? What are your weekend plans? Is there a topic you’ve just been ruminating on that you want to talk about?
If we were having coffee….
I’d welcome you to a chilly November. It’s been colder than usual here, which I honestly haven’t minded too much. I like the cold (my joints don’t, but I do), and I’m kind of hoping that this means we’ll end up with some fun weather this winter. I love snow and storms, and could really use some this year. It would just make me happy.
November means the start of National Novel Writing Month. This year I’m participating (as I do most years), and I’m hoping that I’ll be able to get some fiction-writing going. It’s been a while since I’ve really written much at all and I do miss it. The point of NaNo (at least for me) is to shut down any inner editor and just let words flow. When I was younger that’s pretty much how I wrote anyhow, I just let the words flow through me and often it was as though I weren’t writing the stories, but just channeling the tales of creatures of other lands. Once I started thinking about my writing as something I wanted to share with others, though, it took a different form and I had to start thinking about editing and things making sense and all that stuff…. and eventually (over many many years) I just kind of lost the flow. So it’s been FAR too long since I’ve really written fiction, and I want to get back to it. NaNo this year is marking my kick-off of writing for me. Fiction for no reason other than to put stories on a page and see where they lead me. So, much of the weekend will be devoted to getting a kick-start on all that!
What are you up to this weekend?
