NaNoWriMo is Happening!

As usual, it seems that my posts are starting with “It’s been so long…” blah blah blah. It’s true. It HAS been so long. Sometimes I get into my own head way too much, then just second-guess any writing and decide not to post. I’m sure this is a cycle many writers are familiar with. That being said, sometimes it might be a long time between posts, but I’ll try to get over myself and get some words out there. To that end, #NaNoWriMo is here and I have finally decided to participate! Yesterday I took the plunge and am now sitting at a whopping 3300 words…only 47,000 or so to go (writing, not math, is my jam). Here is the tentative opening/tiny snippet of the post-outbreak, werewolf-hunting world I’m living in this month.

Saara-Jean huffed out a breath, watching it hang in front of her before it dissipated in the frigid Siberian air. Her team had been at the research site for almost two weeks. She had a good feeling about today.
“Dr. King!” she heard her partner, Dr. John Price, call her.
She waddled over as fast as she could in her extra padded and layered snowsuit.
“How are we doing?” She asked, staring at the screen he held in his hand, which was tracking the progress of the slow drill they had pushing into the depths of the permafrost soil.

Thanks for stopping by and for reading. Good luck to all the crazy, dedicated, amazing people participating in #NanoWriMo this year!
