I have a few writing adventures coming up, and I was thinking it might be fun to blog about them.
First of all, I have signed up for a class in feature writing. I've always wanted to write features well (I wrote some for the college papers but let it slide badly after I graduated) and there's a great-looking six-week course starting in Dublin on September 23rd.
And secondly, we are approaching the dreaded November - yes, it's Nanowrimo time again! A lot of writers don't like the idea of Nano, and that's fair enough (I'll probably blog about this again at some point), but I love it. It's one of the highlights of my year, even when I fail horribly and have to spend the month decidedly un-busy and surrounded by well-meaning friends who say things like 'Wow, I'm holding you up, you should get back to your novel!'. To which I respond, 'No. I really shouldn't. Trust me.'
My recent period of blog-quietness was also a period of writing-quietness. I'm revisiting some old projects and tinkering with some new ones, but I could use a shot in the arm. Fortunately I have shots in both arms coming up - and conveniently, my course finishes a few days before November, so I can come down slowly from thinking in a serious and journalisty fashion before Nanowrimo unleashes itself upon me again.
Can't wait :)
