I’m gearing up for the Clarion West Write-a-thon again, but I’m afraid it’s kind of snuck up on me–a lot like Christmas always does! It seemed like I had plenty of time–and I was planning to get the word out early–and it’s starting just next week.
The project I’ve chosen is pretty ambitious, but also something I’m so excited about that in many ways it’s better than Christmas! I’m going to try to complete a draft of a novel I started many years ago and, as I mention on my Write-a-thon page, it’s set in what may very well be my favorite world. Spending a lot of time there is something I’ve been looking forward to for ages. But precisely because I know this world and these people so well, one of the challenges will be that there’s even more pressure when it comes to ‘getting it right’ and finding the words that will do them justice.
