Here we are in the middle of October already. NaNoWriMo is two weekends away and my prep has amounted to half an hour of me staring at a blank screen willing my brain to come up with ideas.
This is supposed to be a blog about writing, and hey, I’m going to write something that isn’t really along that vein today. I hope you’ll all bear with me.
So after many years of waiting and planning and researching, I finally got a puppy last week. Exciting, right? Well, actually no.
There’s a good reason I tend not to write sequels to completed novels. I don’t want to ruin my own canon. There’s a difference between a sequel, a spin-off, and a continuation. I say, when you have a completed series, don’t create a sequel that could potentially ruin the previous books.
I’m a Millenial, and what that means (aside from all the terrible accusations from Baby Boomers about how lazy, entitled, and stupid we all are), is that I grew up with the internet. We were the first generation to have it entrenched in our lives from a young age. I’m one of those lucky ones who’s seen the change rather than being born into it, and I have no shame in saying that I love social media.
Pumpkin spice is coming.
I hate to say it, but NaNoWriMo is just around the corner. Again.
And by 1,000 I mean one. Warning, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child spoilers ahead.
