Novelist?

I am going to keep this short, because this is just my way of procrastinating. I signed up for National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo(.org) for short. My friend, Allie Brannon, did this a couple years ago, and I thought then that I could/would never do it. But this year I felt inspired. So, here goes nothing. I am partly blogging this because the NaNoWriMo gnomes keep emailing me and encouraging first-timers to tell everyone they know that they are writing a novel – the purpose is to shame me into doing it even when it gets hard (which it already is).

Here are the basics:

Goal:

By midnight on November 30, have 50,000 words written

Don’t write the same word over and over

Write fiction and start from scratch Nov 1 (no previous drafts)

Murder your inner (and outer) editor and just WRITE

So far, here is my status: 5,761 words written. (This is below my goal for this point in the game, but I’m playing catch up!)
