Sorry I totally disappeared for a while there! Aside from the obvious (the Jewish holidays that crowd Tishrei), I had other reasons for going AWOL. The biggest one is that I started a new writing gig! I have a new humor column in The Jewish Home Los Angeles, so I’ve been writing that in edition to my usual fiction and editing regimen.
Here’s my last column: https://jewishhomela.com/2017/09/28/humor-an-angeleno-sukkos/
The next one is due out on newstands in L.A. tomorrow.
Now that Simchas Torah is over, I’m hoping to return to my weekly blogging schedule already in progress.
Aside from the new column, my big writing goal in the short term is attempting NaNoWriMo for the first time. That means I’ll be attempting to write the first draft of an entire novel in the month of November! I’ve been working on a plot outline, doing a tiny but necessary bit of research, and will be creating some character profiles, too, before November arrives. That should make the writing process go a little smoother, I think.
Anyone else out there planning to write a novel in November?
