A Quiet Month

November has been a month of partial frustration and pseudo progress. I'm not really sure how else to describe it. This post might be a little bit spastic since i am covering several topics.

NaNoWriMo has forced me to write daily, but my chances of finishing at this point are pretty damn slim. If I don't finish, but breach 30,000 words, than I have hit my old monthly goal, and that would be a major victory. However, falling behind on my current WIP has given me a pretty terrible gut check. I feel guilty and ashamed about it, though I really should be grateful that I am writing and still like my story.

I might have to deal with being a 1,000 words a day kind of guy. Sure, I have my moments where I can pump out 4,000 words, but those are few and far between. I may not be as prolific as many authors out there, but if I can manage to be consistant, I think good things will come of it.

Editing is once again a primary concern. I need to find a writers group. I haven't received the feedback I need to grow as a writer, and at this point, I'm not sure where to find it.

Any suggestions on finding a group of willing editors would be appreciated. My google-fu isn't quite what it used to be.
