Not too much, really.
But I keep reminding myself that it is better than nothing--and way more than there would be if I hadn't decided to NaNoFiMo.
I am writing a book right now that I truly have NO IDEA how I am going to get it to the place I think it needs to go. Not that I really even know where it will end up. I just kind of have an idea of where it might ought to go. I feel like some inept person pointing to a map and saying, "Hey, I think I'll go to that dot there. Looks like a good dot."
But the story is interesting to me, so I will continue to follow it.
At a snail's pace.
However, I kind of want to write something Christmas-y, and I am not certain if such a scene will fit in my WIP. Some of my favorite tales are Christmas tales (A Christmas Carol, The Velveteen Rabbit, etc). I just want to write something that will get me in the spirit.
Maybe I'll just throw caution to the wind and start something new. (Not something long, just something a little newish...)
Like a tiny, little Christmas story.
"Most stories about Christmas are big and shiny
with large presents and tall, glittering trees.
But not this story.
This is a very tiny Christmas tale..."
Hmm...wonder what I'll do with that.
