So have having a really nice rolling start on NaNoWriMo, I got hit with depression after the USA Elections. The useless depression where all you feel is a need to survive, draining every drop of creativity. And so that killed NaNoWriMo for me. It’s taken me some time to get over it, and the voices are starting to come back, despite the rapid colds tearing its way through the household and physical injury that makes working at a computer a challenge.
On the upside, Christmas Holiday’s were very lovely, and certainly a healthy end to one very sad year. 2016 was not the worst year for me, but it definitely wasn’t entirely the best. Favorite actors and musicians passed on, the politics this year were brutal. Not to mention the chaos of my personal life of a lot of job changing and the insecurity that comes with.
2017 however welcomes good thing. Which include a new page in a new book. Time to put aside 2016 and start writing the stories of 2017.
