Crafts and Cinderella

So, there are a couple things I wanted to write about today.

One, I recently created another blog: On that blog I will be writing about all sorts of creative and crafty things, like cross-stitching, sewing, art, scrapbooking, etc. This blog will continue to me mostly about my life and writing. So, take a moment to check out my other blog if you haven't already.

Second, I finally finished the rough draft of my Cinderella spin-off, which was my NaNoWriMo novel from last year. It ended up being just over 74,000 words long. It will need LOTS of revision, but at least the first draft is complete. This is actually the first full draft of a novel I've ever written! It is a good achievement, though one I planned on achieving years ago. But, I have made the progress I have made, and that is good.

This year I plan to participate in NaNoWriMo, but probably not to the full extent. Life has gotten busier, and I don't know that I can put everything off to the side for a month like I did last year. I might do it but set a lower goal, or I might continue working on a novel I've started previously and just try to write some each day. I'm not sure yet. We'll see.
