November is drawing to a close, and with it, NaNoWriMo nears its end. Am I on the final sprint towards the fifty thousand word goal? Or am I limping behind, the finish line still a distant glimmer on the horizon? I have no idea, because I’m writing this post a few days in advance so I can schedule it to go up at a more appropriate time. I’ve got my fingers crossed for my future self, although I must admit that prospects are bleak. If your curiosity for information on my progress simply cannot be quenched, I’m posting regular updates over on my Patreon feed.
For now, however, some patron content of a different kind – a new poem in the workshop! As ever, I’m giving every supporter at the $2 tier or higher access to an in-progress draft of a never-before-seen piece of work – this time, a poem I’m working on as part of my first formal submission of work for my PhD. It’s a poem about sitting around playing video games, or I suppose playing one video game in particular, so I’m clearly sticking to the adage of ‘write what you know’ this month.
If you want to give it a read, it’s available right now in the Workshop, along with every other draft piece I’ve uploaded there since I kicked off my Patreon project back in May. Let me know what you think of it!
