Hello, and welcome back to my blog!
So we’re heading right into prime productivity season, as I try desperately to get everything done that I need to before NaNoWriMo rolls around. How successful I am at this remains to be seen, of course, but hey.
I’ve been struggling this summer. A rather problematic sensitivity to heat and an absurdly warm summer means that I’ve spent the last couple of months feeling very ill. My mental health hasn’t been all that great, either. My productivity has suffered quite a bit because of this. I want to use the coming months to get caught up on stuff and get back on my game.
So. I present to you, a list of my current pre-NaNo writing projects, some of which will probably become NaNo projects later on:
- The Illusion of Perfect Things: A chosen family fights to stay alive and together as a tyrannical government power seeks to create the ‘perfect’ society by disposing of those they consider imperfect.
- Before The World Goes Dark: In a world ravaged by overpopulation, climate change, and rapidly dwindling resources, one man plots to save the lives that others dismiss as worthless.
- The Voiceless Ones: After a suicide attempt as a teenager left them with the strange ability to see ghosts, a group of young queer adults offer closure to the spirits of those lost to anti-queer bigotry.
In addition to these, I’m making a goal to write at least 500 words per day. Once I can get myself up to that level, I’ll work on boosting it to 750, then 1,000. If I can do that before NaNo, I’ll be good.
Thank you, and I hope to be around much more often as we head into NaNo season!
