Like a hatchling, sitting in the palm of our hand, shaking with the energy of unlocked potential… Or something else that doesn’t resemble the shit-show that 2022 was. Hmmm.
Good luck everyone.
Already I’ve reached two of my daily creative milestones. This is how you do a New Year’s resolution. Small, achievable and scalable.
And I’ve blogged! Truly it’s a New Year’s miracle!
First things first, I’m not doing NaNoWriMo this year. But I am doing a Creative November.
What does that mean?
Well, a bit of writing everyday.
It doesn’t have to be main story stuff. Could just be a bit of worldbuilding, some character work or expanding on some in-world terminology.
I’m using a new notebook I treated myself to a week or so ago. I’m a whore for a new notebook. 🙂
So, yesterday I put the first few hundred words down on a new story. It has no proposed length but I have an end(of sorts) in mind.
There’s no pressure, just committing some mental resourses to something I used to enjoy. Also, it’s good for the mental health to have something to do that isn’t just the mundane housework.
What’s the story?
It’s starting as a police procedural type on a distant, recently settled world. I have some mad ideas to add to it. No wizards or giant robots though. I don’t think it’s that kind of tale. 🙂
