I did it. I signed up for the National Novel Writing Month. Check out my nifty new word counter on the right.
Now my brain is full of ideas for the novel and I’m fighting not to start. I had to get out of bed at 5am this morning to write the first paragraph. It came to me in the middle of the night and I had to write it down. The beginning of stories has always been the hardest part for me so when the first few lines woke me up I had to get out of bed.
No more, I will not write another word of this story until November 1st, but I will write notes, lots, and lots of notes.
I’m excited! I’ve never done anything like this before and I plan to take advantage of all the extra holidays I get in November to write. I guess Christmas shopping will have to wait until December 1st.
