Well, my partially completed sweater became balls of yarn yesterday. Then I cast on 200 stitches and started again. My new pattern
has a very simple cable and I’m enjoying getting back to work with needles and yarn again.
I started something else new, yesterday—brainstorming ideas for my NaNoWriMo novel. This is my first attempt at NaNoWriMo and it’s an intimidating prospect. To survive, I plan to rely heavily on Chris Baty’s No Plot? No Problem! I’ve already read it once; I expect to read parts of it several times before the end of November. I love the humour, the practical advice, and plan to follow all the recommendations for coffee and junk food consumption—though, sadly, my coffee has to be caffeine free.
If you’re brainstorming ideas for your NaNoWriMo opus, or for your short story or poem, and are looking for inspiration, I’ll be posting 5 writing starters a day for the next 7 days.
I’d love to hear where the writing starters take you. Drop me a line here or join me on Twitter .
