One of the main reasons I started this blog was to get me writing regularly. The prospect of writing a novel or even finishing a short story was so daunting that for a long time, I wrote on and off without ever actually finishing anything. Having ideas wasn’t a problem but seeing a project through to the end was.
I think this was because I wasn’t writing regularly. While I may not be the most prolific blogger, I have published an average of once a month for the last two years. At the same time, I’ve started to write fiction again for the first time in years. Last summer, I finished my first short story.
While the main focus of this blog will remain tango and travel, I decided that I also wanted a space to share my thoughts on my writing process. Over time, I will add posts on blogging, writing in general and what inspires me.
I started this section at the end of October 2017, just before embarking on doing NaNoWriMo for the second time. This time, I was writing short stories instead of a novel (apparently this makes me a NaNoRebel) and there is a tango theme!
I am currently revising the short stories I wrote during NaNoWriMo and adding a few more. If all goes to plan, I will share the draft with my beta readers early in 2020. Ultimately, I plan to publish them as a collection. Check back here for further updates or you can subscribe to my occasional newsletter.
