A brief update on where some of my writerly things stand:

1) Hindsight Draft 4 is not even close to done, so I will not be finishing that before November. Instead I'll just take a month-long break from it, let it chill, and delve into it come December. There's a lot of work to do for it, and I got really stuck on the beginning (like always). I'm still happier with this version than the last one though, so I know I'm headed in the right direction! I've also been thinking over a few things for later books that make a lot of sense and I can keep those things in mind during Hindsight. I think this version might just turn out well, if I have the time to work on it that is!

2) I have had extremely limited time to work on Magician and the Knight, and I really miss it. I'm anxious to get back into it after November! I have been doing some doodling for it, which is fun. But nothing that I'd want to put up on Deviantart (not to mention most of it's been on sticky-notes). Merek, Roscoe, your stories will be written! 

3) Writing Challenge. As you can see here on Deviantart, I've been pretty good about getting the challenge done these last few months. I did, as I mentioned in October's version, shorten the scene to compensate for the crazy, hectic months that are October and November--but that's probably for the best.

And lastly:

4) NaNoWriMo! Saturday is the first day of November. Which means I will be working almost exclusively on The Many Lives of Gregory Marnes! Greg Marnes, as I will be calling the story for short, is mostly about accidental time travel as far as I can tell so far. It's my first time writing a time travel novel, so we'll see what happens. As usual, I'm going into NaNo with little to no plan. I was getting really stressed over NaNo for the last week or so until I had a realization that I wasn't following my own knowledge of the month. It's quantity, not quality. It's a first draft, not anything I will publish right away. I had the epiphany that look at Hindsight. Look at how different it is now than it was November 2010. Whatever crazy, foolish things I come up with, however many paragraphs about bread and butter, it doesn't matter. What I write in November is nothing but flinging words on a page trying to figure out which ones stick themselves into a decent plot. I don't need to be accurate. I don't need to be perfect. I just need to write it. And that's what I'm going to do.

Anyway, like I said this has just been an update on my current major projects. There's so much I want to do for my writing, if only I had the time for it all!
