12 (?) Days to NaNoWriMo

I have to remember to continue my content creators series once NaNoWriMo starts.

One of my current favorites, Xiran Jay Zhao, has written a book, Iron Widow (we’ll be seeing this one again. And again. It’s awesome (also, Germane Amazon Link!)) and she recently posted a video on her journey to being a published writer. And I’m not completely unpublished. I made two whole dollars from an article I sold to Yahoo! back in the day.

But still. I’ve written a bunch of novel-length fanfics, but it’s been a long time since I’ve written any original fiction. And Zhao’s video makes me miss it.

I don’t think I’m going to do much fiction writing during NaNoWriMo, this year at least. Maybe next year, particularly since if I write blog posts to get me through most of 2022 this month. Then I can do a mini-NaNo and do some fiction writing then.

First, though, steampunk kids’ books, because the only way I can get my intended plot to work out is to set it in a kind of steampunk-y world.
