I figured out how to post, and then immediately forgot. 20 lashes with the virtual wet noodle for me…

I put up my first day’s NaNoWriMo output on a page here headed “Day One”. I THOUGHT I was putting it under the general NaNoWriMo page, but damifi can find it anywhere on here. Maybe I should offer some kind of authorly prize to the first person who can figure out what I actually did with it?

You know, if anyone would be interested in engaging on the subject of “Writing: Craft vs. Mechanics”, I’d love to chat. I’m still comparatively new to the world of e-writing — I’ve mentioned to a few people that I still do rough drafts in longhand, I just don’t feel as creative when I sit down at the computer. Which is slowing down the NaNoWriMo process for me considerably, since I essentially have to write everything twice, but there you have it. And my creative writing degree goes back to 1982, which was the last time, until this latest burst of creativity, that I seriously tried to do anything with my writing. Let’s just say that the literary landscape looks REALLY different now than it did then. Frankly, I find the prospect of needing “author pages” and a blog and probably God help me a Twitter account, all before I even TRY to pitch a manuscript, extremely daunting. And not all that relevant to the actual writing experience. Am I the only literary Luddite out there? Talk to me…
