After years of excuses (some legitimate, some not), I have finally cleared my calendar for the month of November, aiming to participate in the National Novel Writing Month. Over the course of 30 days, I plan to write 50,000 words. According to the website, that's about 175 pages.
And the best part? Realizing those germs of novels that were planted over the last few years may not have grown very big, but the small vines they sprouted have entwined around each other and what were once simple and undeveloped tales may now work together into a richer fiction.
Are you writing along too?
