There is a distinct vibration over on the NaNoWriMo site. They’re busy posting and keeping things alive, but the buzz caused by the approach of November is beginning to build. I checked out one of the forums and was surprised to find it hadn’t seen any action in nearly a year. It left me with a vague sense of a breath being held; a pause button that got left on.
It would be similar to walking into a room where a big party had just ended, that door across the room clicking closed and the once-buoyant streamers starting to sag. But the door has been closed for months and the streamers are sagging with dust. Soon the cleaning crew will come in and sweep it all clean, updating the databases and freshening the decorations.
Big things are on the writing horizon and I’m looking forward to them.
