2021 NaNo Results

NaNoWriMo Writer 2021

It never fails. When I have a creative deadline, I can count on the muse whispering in my ear and handing me a big bucket of inspiration. Of course, the wild onslaught of compelling visions arrived for a completely different area of interest. So much for my desire to place my focus and efforts on my writing.

Apparently, for November, the muse wanted me to take care of creating a few holiday gifts. My goal is to do everything in my power not to upset my muse. Keeping the diva happy and making sure she is a frequent visitor at my house is imperative, so I complied. The result is that I started and finished four projects. There are also a handful of other projects in the works.

Lest you assume I didn’t do any writing for NaNa, let me calm your fears. My cumulative word count for November will not win me any prizes, but I eked an additional 5k words for my story. From my side of the relationship — the muse owes me.


Keep on writing.

“You don’t start out writing good stuff. You start out writing crap and thinking it’s good stuff, and then gradually you get better at it. That’s why I say one of the most valuable traits is persistence.” — Octavia E. Butler
