NaNo Update

As much I’m in my drawing mode, I managed to review all story ideas last weekend for NaNo and decided on STOS.

I started writing STOS as a series of stories based loosely on a common theme at the beginning of the year. Through out the writing process, I had a tugging feeling that I was writing more than “a series of stories”. For a fleeting moment, the name “novel” popped up in my mind. But I disregarded it, as I didn’t think I was ready to write novel length story. However, the seed was sowed.

For those who follow this blog (thank you!) you know that I’m also working my way through Eric Maisel’s books on creativity. One thing Maisel encourages all creatives is to dream and think big. Don’t limit yourself. This brought me back to STOS. But I was still hesitated.

Now that I'm only 3 weeks away from NaNo, I could not afford to be indecisive, hence this is it. I’ll make use of NaNo to finish STOS.

Wish me luck! :)

Good luck as you move ahead with this adventure. Exploration seems to give birth to new production. It sounds exciting.

Good luck in November, break a pencil or something like that. I look forward to another update.

He who hesitates is lost.
