Tell Me A Story, or Alice of the Flying Birds
Golden Fluid Acrylic and Prismacolor Watercolor Pencil on vintage Alice in Wonderland Page
I've been busy. Finishing my nanowrimo word count... woohoo! We have achieved 50k! But we are not done with the story, so I will try to continue my writing routines.
For the first time, I don't really feel all that burnt out by nanowrimo. I only wrote once a day for an hour or two or so. I didn't push to write all the time. I just tried to get it done in the morning when I first got up. It wasn't always possible, due to the other people in my life, but I tried and mostly succeeded. Good enough, since I reached my goal. Now I feel the urge to finish this story, and even to get it out there into the world.
Isn't that interesting?
Always before, I just wanted to put the nano book away and do something else.
Slow and steady wins the race, maybe?
The race being being a writer. One who writes consistently, not just one month out of the year.
It's funny, I didn't mean to go in this direction with this post. I was thinking it might be nice to do a thankful post, since I missed it on Thanksgiving, but to tell you the truth, my head is in my story. It is in writing.
Which is maybe why I picked the line "tell us a story" out of the text. Trust me, it's there, even if it is painted over.
So I'm going with the flow.
Tell me, what story is in you that wants to come out?
