It’s National Novel Writing Month and I’ve joined the movement! NaNoWriMo challenges participants to write a 50,000 word novel during the month of November, averaging out to 1700 words a day. Being the procrastinator I am I’ve written nary a sentence– and it’s the tenth of the month– so it’s time to do NaNoWriMo my way before it’s lost in the abyss of unfinished projects in my brain. 2500 words daily: no distractions, no interruptions, no excuses. Even if the end result falls below my expectations at least I’ll have a guideline, a draft of a draft.
My book about what happened in California is long overdue. These next 20 says guarantee to keep me on my toes. Yet I am so ready for this challenge. It’s only fitting that this is the two year anniversary of the worst day of my life…..and I could not think of a better way to channel my emotions than [finally] creating my novel. Thanks for the inspiration, Sharon Murch. I’m determined to make this happen.
With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,
