Late Nights and Coffee Dependency…

I have discovered something lately. I simply can not stay up late at night anymore without copious amounts of coffee on hand. 

I have come to the painful, if somewhat obvious conclusion that I may not be as young as I used to be.

Of course my other persona is a writer of speculative fiction so I suppose I could always write my way into a world where they have 36 hour days, 10 day weeks and 15 month years!

Nah… that wouldn’t work either. I’d just fill that schedule too.


Where am I going with this you’re asking yourself…

Well, if you read my last post, you’ll know that I have decided to throw my hat into the ring again with NaNoWriMo.


Yep. I really am certifiable. But then, aren’t most writers?

I mean we hear voices in our heads and we talk back – sometimes argue too! Or at least I do.

My characters are always doing stuff I tell them not to – I can’t have that, can I?  There would be chaos all over.

And apparently those of us who participate in NaNoWriMo have just a little extra crazy.

I’m OK with that.

Especially once I figured out that most authors write more than 50,000 words in a month. When you count the first draft of a manuscript, edits on the one you turned in three months ago, blog posts, interviews and social media stuff – that’s WAY more than 50,000.

So if I’m crazy, I must be absolutely normal!

Have a GREAT night!

I’m going back to work!
