I’m calling it. I’m out — at least partway, but I’ll get to that.
Honestly, I first considered quitting a couple days into the month but felt a lot of emotional resistance & wanted to stick it out.
But after looking things over I realized that if I press through at this point I’m just making a shit ton more work for myself in first edit.
While that’s acceptable — and putting off the misery is a comfortable habit — I’ve decided it’s not the wisest use of my time this month.

This is my final #Preptober post. #NaNoWriMo starts at midnight & I’m planning on going to the first write-in of the month tomorrow evening — will report back.

Here’s to going into November with guns blazing.
Okay, so this is admittedly a little rushed. I’m trying to wrap Inktober up while really getting into prep for both of my #NaNoWriMo challenges AND my November Call of Cthulhu campaign launch.

Okay, this is really late and some are only sketches — shit got busy.
#NaNoWriMo is so damn close and I found another book on the Wellington disaster at a book sale. So, I’m spending all my prep time researching a tiny element of the story and falling behind on frigging everything as I tend to do.
I’ll be posting week 4 within the next couple of days.

I’m trying to juggle a lot this month, but
@rachelbatemanbooks preptober challenge has a lot of helpful prompts to get the wheels going for NaNoWriMo 2019.
I’m not a frequent Instagram poster — and don’t really want to flood my account — so I’m just going to post this here weekly and link it from other social media.

Yup, I’m participating in Inktober this year — both the traditional
make an ass of yourself with childish doodles part and the make an ass of yourself but with words “writer’s version.”
I’m sticking to simple poems/prose pieces that take no more than a half hour to put together due to time restrictions — and I’m keeping with the prompt as much as possible.
I’m a little late getting this first week’s work put together to share for reasons. But I have the hang of things a little better now hope to be on time next week.
