I've enjoyed this week. Pottering about relaxing me writing muscle has helped me de-stress. It's a funny thing how you don't notice you're stressed until the pressure is off. There's a certain joy in doing nothing, thinking random thoughts and mucking about with things you don't usually have time for. Even the dusting has been more fun than usual.
I had thought this week might give me a chance to come up with a brilliant idea for a new project, but it hasn't. And to be honest the thought of churning out a frenetic load of new material so soon after finishing the last one doesn't fill me with unbridled enthusiasm. So sadly I'm stepping down from this year's Nanowrimo.
But those of you who are giving it a go, especially the Nano virgins trying it for the first time, I will be cheering you on and may drop into the website from time to time to see how you're doing. Feel free to buddy me as flyingtart. And remember the most important thing is taking part - everything else is a bonus.
