I’m Still Here

So I haven’t posted anything in over two months. Well, I had major surgery in mid-December and needed a six- to eight-week recovery period, though I felt better long before then. Still. Precautions. And fortunately, I don’t have cancer.

I didn’t do much writing after NaNoWriMo, and then the surgery came up. I was also accepted into StoryStudioChicago’s Novel-in-a -Year program (NIAY), which started in January. It’s a one-year course that meets monthly and offers support to a small number of novel writers. And, of course, workshop is a part of that.

I decided that I would continue writing once the class started so I could get some direction, set goals, etc, And I have. I’ve written every day so far this month. I’ve had to rearrange my schedule to make the time to write, so I’m not reading as much as I would like. Also not crocheting as much. Both are basically my hobbies. That’s it, unless eating counts as a hobby.

As I continue to write my novel, I’ll try to give more updates on how it’s going.

Thanks for sticking around.
