Life After Nano

Maybe the most difficult thing, now, is moving forward after Nanowrimo.  Even when I did finish a novel in 2006, I found I could not move forward.  That novel has sat in a binder, unedited, for years now.

And, with this novel, I am halfway through.  I see it coming together, and it is more cohesive than the previous one.  (I expected that.)  But, continuity is the key.  So, here on this blog, I will be posting entries and ideas about “Life After Nano.”

Trying to decide whether or not to do ScriptFrenzy. My last attempt at Nano crashed and burned; just did not have the continued focus necessary for the productivity to make Nanowrimo happen for me.  (Did it in 2006 but could not make it happen in either 2007 or 2008.)

If I do launch into ScriptFrenzy, I might blog about the process of doing this here.
