I am still catching up on my backlog of a to do list. My few weeks of unorganized craziness seem to be ebbing away slowly, so now maybe I can focus and get stuff done. Maybe. At the same time I was stressing myself out, I was having fun. I just need to remember that and get it done.
Given that I didn’t finish NaNoWriMo, I should be focusing on my novel. A wonderful blogger, Mythical Magpie, got herself in the same mess I did with being thousands of words behind. However, she managed to get it all done in time. Congrats to her!
I will be working on poetry in December. Why the shift in gears? The Lyrical Iowa submission deadline and many other deadlines put on my state poetry associations are soon. I want to put my best foot forward and find the best poetry I have to send out this year. Last year, I managed to get a poem into Lyrical Iowa. I want to do better this year. Once my submissions are squared away, I will shift my focus right back on story writing.
Of course, this doesn’t mean that I will not be working on fiction at all. I still plan on working on bits of my stories during poetry month. It has to get done at some point, after all.
What are you doing post-NaNo?
