I guess that means NaNoWriMo is right around the corner. Ugh.
I didn’t participate last year because I was revising Plague of Cataclysms. In 2019, I did this:
*Sad face emoji*
I thought maybe I was finished with NaNoWriMo, since I seem to suck at it and never get close to 50k words, but it just so happens I’m about to start writing a new novel in a couple weeks, and boy would you look at the calendar…

I’m switching things up a bit with my next project, gonna try my hand at sci-fi instead of epic fantasy. I’ve written a number of (terrible) sci-fi short stories, but this would be my first ever novel-length sci-fi work, assuming I follow through and complete it. I’ve been reacquainting myself with machine learning and AI this year, and I thought it would be fun to incorporate some speculative ideas I have within that realm.
Here’s to hoping I can top my most recent incredible effort of 16,850 words this year 🍻
