Happy New Year's Day!
I socialized with relatives, counted down the hours, listened to all the fireworks set off in the neighborhood, watched the ball drop on TV, and rang in the new year with a wreath made of jingle bells. What better start to a new year? On the flip side, the fireworks have been popping and cracking for the two hours since resulting in an over anxious dog. She was scared stiff and she shivered more and more violently until I scrubbed her down thoroughly. So, now my arms hurt, but at least she isn't whining and shaking anymore. Poor dog.
Some writers are in the habit of posting writing goals for the new year for their first post of the year. However, I don't have much of a plan. My goal is to get something, or several somethings, published this year and it would be nice to finish the 1st draft of my new duology project. However, those are things which are up in the clouds at the moment.
However, there is something a little more definite that I can announce today. And that is the feature I'll be running on here for the next two months. I mentioned it a few posts back, but now I shall reveal all.
During NaNoWriMo I spent a good deal of time on a forum I joined years ago. That forum is Narniaweb.com, a Narnia fansite. However, I discovered years ago that quite a few Narniawebbers are also NaNoWriMo participants. This usually leads to the chat being taken over during NaNo by word wars and novel discussions. These discussions gave me the idea for my feature. From my curiosity about the other NW NaNoers came the idea for a feature providing a glimpse into the journeys of the others. So, I rounded up over twenty people to participate and interviewed them with the same set of questions. I hope you find their answers as fun and enlightening as I did!
I'll be posting three interviews a week on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and this feature will continue until I run out of interviews to post. Look for the first interview tomorrow!
Until next time!
