>that one, this one

>This book project, the bird story, sure is a different creature from the one I wrote while we were living in China. I can think of all sorts of reasons.

*that one was NaNoWriMo generated, this one is not

*that one was written in a bubble in China, this one is being written while regular life demands my almost constant attention

* that one had fewer style and length limitations, this one has more – it’s meant for a younger audience (7-10, or middle grade)

*that one had myth and dragons and plant magic and culture building, this one is solidly this-world (though my bird characters don’t act like birds-as-we-know-them)

*that one had community because Owl and Kestral and I were all doing writing projects and we supported each other, this one is just me

*that one seemed like play, this one feels like work
