Looking to the future...

It's getting to be that time of year again. 27 days until NaNoWriMo kicks off. As of this moment I really have no idea what I am going to write about...well that is not completely true. I have a good idea what I am going to write, but this year I want to have it plotted out so I know where I am going. Of course I'll allow myself any diversions, jumping track, blasts of imagination...that is what NaNo is all about. But it would be nice to be able to pull myself back into the general direction of where I'd like to be.

Before the end of the year I'd like to have BIS rewritten and ready to be submitted again. To be completely honest, I have barely written anything in the last few weeks.

It's not because of the rejection, that I was ok with. It has more to do with my loosing another family member. I don't handle death all that well as it is, but loosing 4 family members in 2 years is taking its toll on me. Considering one of my characters is Death, I started wondering today if I just don't want to talk to him. Although refusing to write about one of my characters because I am pissed at him? That would bring me to a whole new neurotic level.
