I decided to write a novel. 🙂 Yeah, yeah, I’ve been saying that for years, but I’m taking advantage of National Novel Writing Month, and I’m going to try to really do it. Basically, for the month of November, entrants must write like crazy, and by the end they must have 50,000 words.
The catch? Well, for one, that is a lot of writing! Two, you’re not allowed to go back and edit, etc. The whole point is to GET ‘ER DONE. Since my inner critic is so nasty, he’s stopped every other novel writing attempt at about 150 words. I keep going over and over and over that initial 150 words, and never get any further.
Hopefully, I’ll be able to keep the bass turd at bay, and get the novel done. It’s about 1,667 words a day, including Thanksgiving, so I should get started!!! (If I post less often, now you know why. I’ll try to update on my progress though. Feel free to spurn me along.)

I couldn’t be happier to hear you are starting a novel. Thats a lot of words a day, but I have faith you can do it. What kind of novel might it be? I am so happy I can ‘t wait to hear more. We will pray that it is not to mind stumping and that the words flow.
