Fall and Dark.

November. A time to write outlines and novels as the days die far too soon.

Writing in the dark is all I know how to do. Daylight burns away the divine, the imagination pilot light, with its work and worries and wars.

Leaves fall; light become rare.

Lack of light has always brought me the solitude I need to ignite the furnace of plots and characters and stories; to pop on the stage lights in my mind, in a way. No sense turning them on without darkness.

Could be why writing can be so dark in nature, too, I guess. It gets in.

Darkness. Worth embracing.

Weird experiences only writers would understand 2.

That moment when one innocent message tips you into a rabbit hole of intriguing research from which you never emerge but finally do two days later…

…with a crammed research browser full of war and guns…

…and you suddenly find yourself craving a replica musket because muskets.

I can haz boomstick? No. really. I can haz BOOMSTICK.

“Okay, writahs! Novembah is here!”

NaNoWriMo is upon us! Now is the time to dive into that work you’ve been planning all year.

By gross income measures, all writers are probably bums.

I’m not the biggest NaNoWriMo’er. Intensive spurts are not my style. I’m more of a disciplinary, brick-on-the-wall-every- day sort of writer.

My view, every day, at 5 a.m. Yeh. Diagnosis imminent.

But I do love the blizzard of activity that hits the writing community every day-after-we-toss-the-costumes day, especially in the indie world.

In that spirit, I’ll be posting All The Memes to keep the bear poked. And I’ll be posting a host of playlists that hopefully will keep your fingers flying on the keyboard for hours on end. I find nothing eats time like a few hours of ambiance sounds tailored to your character’s environment.

(NEXT TIME: Sci-Fi Sounds and Scores!)
