Coming Up for Air

A brief hello from the throes of the writing marathon: NaNoWriMo is going well after week one. A little catch-up needs to take place, but for the most part many more words have been written thus far compared to my past NaNo attempts. It feels really good!

Of course, there are always distractions. There are pesky, minor details like a full-time job, another partial job as a ministry wife, other activities, etc.  …But when aren’t there distractions? This is good for this writer who normally thrives under short-term pressure…brief sprints. This marathon is helping me grow. And I’m really enjoying it.

So if you see me and I’m muttering about crops, Stearman biplanes, ground school, and washing out, don’t mind me. I’m just in another world for the moment.

Question for you: What projects or goals have you taken on recently that really stretched you? What did you learn about yourself?
