Getting back

Into the swing of things is quite hard after NaStyRoMo, lol. I’ve spend three weeks writing a totally original story I planned in about 5 minutes. It reached almost 20K word count wise and the characters are demanding more. I haven’t felt like this in ages, it’s quite… exhilarating. I’ve come to really appreciate the people that I worked with and I think that I’ve come to the conclusion that the only way to get to know a person well is to read their writing. People can act a lot when they speak to you, but there’s something raw and open about words on paper. It’s been a blessing to read other people’s stories I tell you. I have to go back to commercial writing now, lol, needing to finish the three (four if you count the one on hiatus) fan fiction stories that I have in the pipeline. I’m looking forward to it of course, but somehow it won’t be the same. This month has been a lot of fun and NaSty gave me a wonderful distraction to how crazy my life’s become.

I’d like to point y’all to a few websites once again. To those who want to know more about NaSty – please feel free to go to: http://nastyromo.webs.com We’ve gone world wide and hope to have more people to participate next year. The website is still under heavy construction, I’m doing it and I only have the odd moment to spare to play with it. Next, feel free to go to the NaSty blog. I realized that I haven’t pointed this one out at all. You can find the other participants stories there. It’s at: http://nastyromo.wordpress.com
Lastly – and this is more directed towards the NaStyNine, I’d like to point you all towards www.fictionpress.com. It’s a great website on which to host original stories and get some feedback.

Hope to read you all soon!
