This will never become a book.

About

It has been said that everyone has a book inside them just waiting to be written. After three years of participating in NaNoWriMo, I still hadn’t produced a full novel, so in 2012, I started this blog as a way to make writing a daily habit for me.

I decided to switch over to writing the kinds of things that were on my mind, random observations as well as deep thoughts, in the form of short essays and  snippets of fiction. The daily habit lasted for two months, until I was distracted once again by NaNoWriMo. I think this time I might have an actual book in the works!

My intention here is to NOT write a book — I have a writing critique group for that — but to maintain this as an outlet for everything else. Something about having an invisible audience inspires me.

Welcome to my blog.

(I feel so 21st century now.)

  1. Hi kdefg!! I didn’t know how to contact you so I’m leaving a little comment here (I’m a wordpress newb still, what can I say). First I want to say THANK YOU for following me. I’m beyond flattered and I hope I can stay interesting enough for you to read. The second thing I want to say is that the practice of writing every day is a really noble endeavor IMO. This is coming from someone who has never won nano (except maybe this year, but I don’t wanna count my chickens), and who has studied creative writing and gone in slumps since graduating college. The biggest tips I’ve ever received on writing is never stop doing it, because if you’re writing every day, suddenly everything becomes fodder for a project. Reminds me of this famous Ira Glass quote that’s made its rounds on the internet. If you haven’t seen it yet, here it is: http://vimeo.com/24715531

    Anyway, best of luck to you and your writing!!

    • Thank you for tracking me down. I have this odd quirk about keeping all of my various identities separate, and not all of them have convenient modes of contact. Thank you for the Ira Glass link. It is very timely advice, as I wonder how to complete this novel (and what to do with the other NaNos from prior WriMos that I left unfinished). I have no idea how I’ve picked up so many random followers, but I hope they don’t mind when I switch back to a mixture of random essays and other daily writing exercises. I’m enjoying the WordPress community, and I’m sure you’ll find them quite supportive as well.

  2. Hello, KDEFG! Thanks much for the follow. I enjoyed your posts on synchronicity and dreams (two fave subjects of mine) and also adopted the blog for more regular writing practice. Best of luck finishing the novel and thanks again! Best, Josh
