It’s been thirty long days without you, but I return a successful man. I completed my Nanowrimo task, and now have a 45,000 word first draft.
First draft of what, you ask?
A graphic novel memoir, title to be revealed at a later date.
I’m spending these next 2 months reading some supplemental texts, and on my weekends reviewing my draft and planning rewrites to dive into my revision process in February.
For appetite whetting purposes, this memoir is about my family, our multi-generational addictions and habits, war and fishing, Stevie Nicks and french orphans. More details to come–
I am back to my weekly blogs starting this week, and November was a huge success in that I have a very solid writing practice down, clocking in at two hours each morning before work. This last month has been enriching and full of surprises. I worked hard, and lo and behold, it paid off.
I’m glad to be back to the ol’ blog!
Be nice to yourselves,
Your Pal Eli
