Hello, NaNo ...
November is National Novel Writing Month (aka NaNoWriMo). And I'm doing it. Yup, 50,000 words in 30 days. Hoo, boy, what am I getting myself into? But I need to do this. In addition to polishing up the next eBook-to-be (scheduled to be released around the 1st of December), I need to write something NEW. It's just time. And I'm taking advantage of the NaNoWriMo push to do just that.
Believe it or not, I'm off to a good start - 1150 words already this morning, and in the mere span of an hour. I was in the ZONE! I'd forgotten that once I get started the words sort of start to write themselves ... now, that's not to say I won't slam into the proverbial brick wall at some point in the not too distant future, but as I said, I'm off to a good start. It is only the 2nd. We'll see how the rest of the month goes.
I'll try to post word count updates periodically throughout the month, but if you don't see me for a while, don't worry - I'm still here. I'm simply doing what we writers do on occasion - getting lost in our own little worlds, only coming up for air (and coffee) on rare occasions. Until I return, read a book! It's good for you.
Going back to the zone now.
