I’ve been convinced to try something that I’ve not done before. I’m going to be taking part in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). It’s an event that takes place every November.
The idea is to write a 50,000 word novel by the end of November. This could be a great idea or a marvellous disaster as it’s more than I’ve ever managed to write in a single month. But having such a clearly defined goal should give me focus and motivation to put in the effort for the challenge.
I’m currently a little giddy about the prospect of the challenge as I’m in the overly-optimistic stage and believing I’ll manage to complete the challenge. There are one or two ideas for possible novels, but one of them is speaking louder than the others. If I produce the book that is currently floating around my brain, it’ll be worth the sweat and anxiety over the course of the month.
By posting about it here, I’m making the challenge all the more real in my head. Plus it means that it’ll be quite disappointing for me come December 1st if I didn’t give it a decent attempt.
So onwards with more adventures with pen and ink!
