First and foremost, I have to show off my newly completed custom bookshelves that my hubby built for me. As a kid, Belle was always my favorite Disney princess, not because of her clothes or that she got to live in a magical castle, but because of her books! I dreamed of being surrounded by all my favorite titles. I couldn't be happier with how this turned out. And the best part? There is room to spare, Amazon, watch out!
National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is in full swing! I was working on a new project (a thriller for adults) in October, but wanted to set aside NaNo this year for delving back into Esotera and finishing a first draft of the last book in the trilogy, One Earth. I've been making good progress so far. I wrote about 14,000 words last year (after canalizing a few thousand for book two) and as of tonight am sitting at 34,000. 20,000 words in only 8 days! Shows what you can do when you set your mind to something. 
I am really enjoying where the story is going, though it is bitter-sweet for me. I've spent the last 6 years of my life creating this world. To think of it ending is a strange feeling. I wrote the last chapter months ago and find myself re-reading it from time to time. I'm so happy with how it turned out, now I just need to get there!
First drafts can be a bit of a mystery. I have a VERY loose plot and guide, mainly who the star of every chapter is, and roughly where I want everyone to be at a given time, but my cast of characters has swelled from book two and I've added even more. My poor desk looks like a stack of post-its exploded on it. It's a lot to keep track of and I have times of varying success. For instance, I just started chapter 34 and realized I completely left out a character from the first two books. D'oh. He will have to wait til edits. I'm not going to worry about it yet.
That is also my advice to you if you are considering doing NaNo, or just buckling down to work hard on a writing project. Don't worry about making it perfect. Ernest Hemingway said "Write drunk. Edit sober." Not saying that you need a drink in your hand, but if you worry too much about polishing, you run the risk of limiting yourself.
First drafts are messy. Mine don't see the light of day. I do several drafts before I feel OK enough to subject someone to the hot mess I've created. Through each run-through it is polished even more until you, dear reader, get to hold a bright shiny piece in your hands.
But there's no way to do that if you don't get your hands a little dirty first. Keep digging.
Happy reading, and writing.

I am a book enthusiast. According to my professor, people who report as little as a half-hour a day of book reading had a significant survival advantage over those who did not read. I always read an article in terms of advantages of reading books. I find out that a new study has revealed that those who read for at least 30 minutes each day are more likely to enjoy a longer life. Based on a study of 3,635 people aged 50 or older, those who spent time buried in a book survived almost two years longer on average than those who didn't.
