Feels good to be writing again... my own stuff, that is. I'm about 4000 words in -- last year's Sturgeon winner said I should write my memiors, but I wasn't so sure. Then Kij and I saw "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind" yesterday and I realized how to write it -- fictionalized, just a few percent. So it'll be a novel, really; 98% real but 100% true.
I wrote about 3500 words last night, and a bit of touching-up today. A memoir goes so fast, because all the texture, detail, emotion doesn't need to be fabricated. I hope to finish in a month or two! Wish me luck.
